Please join the WRJ/Sisterhood Book Club for fascinating reading and interesting discussions. On Friday, January 28, we will discuss The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner.  Amazon states, “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.”

We extended our reliance on Zoom meetings because of the fall COVID surge. I think it makes sense to continue convening on Zoom until spring.  We look forward to gathering in person in the near future.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Please contact Susan Waterman at [email protected] with questions, comments, and suggestions for future book selections.
