Delicious. Apricots and Wolfsbane is a unique thriller packed with impressive research into historical poisons. Fast-paced, grim, and darkly funny, Pohlkamp’s prose are intoxicating.
~ Jessica Cale, author of Tyburn
Apricots and Wolfsbane is a darkly funny tale that sends an important message even as it winks at the reader along the way. Lavinia is alone in a world that is not friendly to women without a father or a husband. Her choice of profession may be eyebrow-raising, but her justification turns her into a sympathetic character.
