Hidden in the depths of eighteenth-century London, a secret apothecary shop
caters to an unusual kind of clientèle. Women across the city whisper of a
mysterious figure named Nella who sells well-disguised poisons to use
against the oppressive men in their lives. But the apothecary's fate is
jeopardized when her newest patron, a precocious twelve-year-old, makes a
fatal mistake, sparking a string of consequences that echo through the
centuries. Meanwhile in present-day London, aspiring historian Caroline
Parcewell spends her tenth wedding anniversary alone, running from her own
demons. When she stumbles upon a clue to the unsolved apothecary murders
that haunted London two hundred years ago, her life collides with the
apothecary's in a stunning twist of fate, and not everyone will survive.
