Summary of The Lost Apothecary
Short Summary: In 1971 in London, Nella runs a mysterious pharmacist shop, wrongfully giving poison for ladies to murder men who have violated them. When the police track her down, a little youngster who had been helping her, Eliza, offers herself to save Nella. However, a (perhaps magick) tincture Eliza made winds up saving them both, and Nella understands that dealing these poisons isn't the best approach to fix the torment of cheating. In present day, Caroline is a lady who has been cheated on by her significant other. She discovers a piece of information (a vial) about the pharmacist shop, finds it, finds Eliza's contribution, and eventually chooses to throw the vial back into the water to stay quiet.
In The Lost Pharmacist, Nella runs a mysterious pharmacist shop taken cover behind a phony back divider in London where she offers poison to ladies, spread by gossip, to be utilized against the men in their lives who have violated them. She keeps a logbook of every exchange. Nella started administering poisons when she was double-crossed by a sweetheart, Frederick. He had ended up being married, yet when Nella had revealed to him she was pregnant, he'd sneakily given Nella a spice to cause a miscarriage.
In the present day, Caroline has recently found that her significant other of ten years, James, was cheating on her. She's in London for the trip they should have gone on together. She goes on a mudlarking (searching for old articles in the mud) visit through the Thames and finds a light blue vial carved with a bear (the emblem of Nella's pharmacist shop). Curious about the vial, she starts to examine its history. She's helped by Gaynor, a lady who works at the English Gallery.
Back in 1791, a 12-year-old young lady, Eliza Fanning visits Nella's shop. Eliza was asked by her employer, Mrs. Amwell, to bring a poison to kill her husband, Mr. Amwell (it's suggested he is a child molester who has focused on Eliza). The poison functions as expected, and Mr. Amwell dies. Eliza before long re-visits Nella's pharmacy, communicating an interest in Nella's exchange. Eliza is likewise quick to take a break from the Amwell house since she is concerned that Mr. Amwell's ghost is haunting her since she has begun dying (however in reality she has started her period).
In present day, Caroline tracks down a reference to an amazing pharmacist, which prompts a potential area for the shop. She runs into a neglected little rear door and at last discovers what previously was Nella's pharmacist shop. She takes photographs of what she sees, including Nella's old logbook, and she later interprets these into notes, including Nella's depictions of her poisons.
Back in 1791, a lady named Lady Beatrice Clarence enters Nella's shop, needing to harm her husband’s mistress. At the point when Nella declines to intentionally harm another lady, Lady Clarence takes steps to report Nella to the police. Nella hesitantly satisfies the request with Eliza's help. In the mean time, Eliza visits an enchantment shop to attempt to manage Mr. Amwell's ghost, and she winds up stirring up an enchantment tincture to turn around "bad fortune".
