Poisons, potions and mystery

Maine author Mary Lawrence talks about The Alchemist's Daughter'

'The Alchemist's Daughter' ($15, Kennsington Books) follows the work of Bianca Goddard, who lives in the gritty underbelly of Victorian London, usually dispensing cures from her 'Medicinals and Physicks' while avoiding the occult nature her name has gotten from her father's dabbling in alchemy. However, it's her own name (and neck) on the line when her good friend who came into her room for a cure suddenly dies in her care. Both Bianca and the constable suspect poison but unfortunately, the constable believes Bianca is the culprit.
