What we're about

This group is for Lubbock area women who love to read women's fiction. Ladies only (sorry fellas!), no age restrictions. We'll get together once a month to talk about the books over some good food and beverages. (What's a book club without the wine?)

Book Club Meeting: The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner

Market Street

Come join us in OCTOBER for our next book club meeting! The book for this coming meeting, The Lost Apothecary, is a feministic gem.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Hidden in the depths of eighteenth-century London, a secret apothecary shop caters to an unusual kind of clientele. 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.

With crackling suspense, unforgettable characters and searing insight, The Lost Apothecary is a subversive and intoxicating debut novel of secrets, vengeance and the remarkable ways women can save each other despite the barrier of time.
