“First, there was trust. Then, there was betrayal. You cannot have one without the other. You cannot be betrayed by someone you do not trust ... what you have learned is the same heart-wrenching journey of every woman to whom I have sold a poison. And it is, indeed, the same path for me.”
Sarah Penner, The Lost Apothecary

“Intermingled in the mess was another, subtler secret ... we were happy, yet unfulfilled. It was possible, I understood now, to be both at the same time.”
Sarah Penner, The Lost Apothecary

“To me, the allure of history lay in the minutiae of life long ago, the untold secrets of ordinary people.”
Sarah Penner, The Lost Apothecary
