In the late 1700s, a female apothecary secretly dispenses poisons to women who need to free themselves from abusive men. It's a carefully researched, subversive exploration of women rebelling against a man's world, the destructive force of revenge, and the remarkable ways that women can save each other despite the barrier of time.
Once a respected healer, Nela turned her skills to helping women get rid of men. Over 200 years later, a woman finds an old apothecary vial, starts investigating it, and realizes that she's found a link to the unsolved "apothecary murders" that haunted London two centuries ago. And the danger isn't over.
