Narrator Davina Porter creates just the right atmosphere for this Regency story. She deftly matches voice with personality and gives distinct British accents to the various rural and urban characters. Lillie Haswell, the apothecary's daughter, dreams of leaving her quaint English village to travel the world in search of her missing mother. Instead she works with her father in his shop. When the opportunity comes for her to live in London, she jumps at the chance. But things don’t work out as planned . . . In addition to a well-developed plot, the nineteenth-century world of medicine and herbal remedies is well depicted, and fascinating. N.L. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
