The Apothecary by Mary Kingswood

The Apothecary is the next book in the Silver Lining Mysteries. Each of these are books about someone whose nearest relation went down with the Brig Minerva off the coast of Cornwall. This one concerns Annie Dresden.

A quote from The Apothecary by Mary Kingswood

Annie Dresden and her mother live with her uncle, who is an apothecary. He taught Annie all about what being one entails. But she longs to be a wife and mother. She had suitors, but none who could ever afford to marry her.
