The Apothecary's Daughter
The Apothecary's Daughter
by Julie Klassen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.66

1.0 out of 5 stars not as good as expected!, 8 Sep 2014
Too cloyingly sweet...every time there is a crisis, one of the dashing suitors steps in, and what poor young woman, with a dubious parentage and an astounding mother, has four eminently suitable, handsome and intelligent, dashing and sexy followers? As some other reviewers have pointed out, the most interesting parts were the ones that dealt with the apothecary work...the rest was rather silly, dull and predictable...and not finding the mother was a big let-down! I did not find the social behaviour correct either, too much licence was granted in public...not at all like Austen, rather like teenage wishfulfillment and angst...a disappointment!


Unfettered A Novel
Unfettered A Novel
Price: £0.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting!, 28 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Deeply interesting and disturbing, as an informative document of "race" relations in the past, with pertinent results in the now. Scary, ominous, foreshadowing, and frustrating....such small progress in so many years...for historians of politics in the US , but not for readers who want FUN and joy!


Pink and White Tyranny A Society Novel
Pink and White Tyranny A Society Novel
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting!, 27 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite good, ascerbic and witty in parts, a bit too smarmy towards the end, as if a moral sentimentality had to be tacked on, in order to live up to some ideal...until the last few pages it is interesting and straight, harsh and honest...Stowe really does not like what she calls "French" decadence and immorality...but apart from those idiosyncrasies (dislike of "French" influence, and the coda of sweet irrational "goodness") the story is good, amusing, well written and surprisingly tart! Recommended!


The Wharf by the Docks A Novel
The Wharf by the Docks A Novel
Price: £0.00

1.0 out of 5 stars Melodrama!, 27 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Convoluted, dramatic story, with thefts, bankruptcies, murder, broken engagements, insanity, police, pickpockets, secret tunnels and smuggling, receivers of stolen goods, intrigues, unknown halfsiblings, and finally not one, but two weddings...and of course some Money, making it all go easier! Predictable plot, not much excitement, not particularly charming protagonists...good for a rainy day vacation read!
