What a juvenile and immature comment. You need to learn some manners or better yet just keep your thoughts to yourself. Your words are not discussion worthy nor are they helpful in any way other than to prove your own immature behaviour.

I started with the apothecary's daughter and have just finished the last of her available books on here, the girl in the gatehouse. I love them all and cant wait for more. I'm 26 and don't think it's too mature or immature for me.

I read it and enjoyed it. My 15 yo daughter just read it and enjoyed it as well. I think my 14 yr old also read it or is getting ready to. I LOVE Julie Klassen's writings. Good, clean and just downright enjoyable!

You're very welcome:) I also can't wait for her new book!!!! Hopefully within the next few weeks they'll have both the product and publisher's descriptions.

I found out from the website that Julie's new book will be out in December and it's called, The Maid of Fairbourne Hall. (!!!) I just wanted to mention it to the real fans that have been in this discussion. I, for one, am very excited about Julie's new release and thought I should pass the info along since no other websites have mentioned this yet. Julie's books are absolutely awesome. Have a good day everyone!

i love to read and very picky about "Christian Historical Fiction" I found that Julia was very engaging..looked to do research and added so much to her story lines. I read all 4 of her novels and really enjoyed them..all in the last month. Anybook that keep my attention into the wee hours in the morning...must be pretty good.

Rachele, I think it would be a beautiful read for both of you. I came away knowing so much more about the period. It would be a good introduction to a history lesson on the era. I appreciated Ms. Klassen's extensive research into the life of an apothecary. I also loved the quotes from contemporary books on the subject; these were woven into each chapter very skilfully. There are a couple of love stories. These are treated respectfully and gently. Happy reading!

I have been reading non-stop for the last 25 years, all types of genre from autobiographies to scifi. I'll wager I've read a hundred romance novels. This book was a breath of fresh air, and I couldn't put it down from the first page. I'm not overly religious but I related to every nuance of faith in this book. After living in the UK many years, I was able to picture every scene and follow the dialogue quite easily as it was as authentic as one who is not English could manage! The criticism I've read is that the story and writing are too simple, but these are not complicated, sophisticated folk. They are like us--poor, fragile, lonely, some a bit grasping and greedy, and definitely imperfect. But the search for love always makes a great story! Brilliant job, Julie, and I have bought all the others on Kindle.

I bought all of her books after reading the gatehouse one! I loved them all! I'm an avid reader and it's nice to find authors like Julia who know how to write good stories without feeling the need to explicitly describe any sex scenes. All her heroines come from different backgrounds and each have made some form of mistake, but all of them emerge with one of the most important aspects a heroine possess: character! Love her books and can't wait for more! Please Hurry!!

It is certainly appropriate but she may have a bit of difficulty following it as it does use some old English terms....but then it would be great for her to learn them and this book would be an entertaining way for her to do so.

I could not put this book down (The Apothecary's Daughter). I loved it. It kept me up night after night reading and reading and reading. I have not ENJOYED reading so much. I LOVED IT and SAVED it. Will read it again sometime.

"Thw Apothecary's Daughter" is the only one of hers I've read - so far! - and I loved it. I thought it was credible, insofar as I don't know very much about that time and place.

Now to add the others to my Wish List ...

Thank you for your input!! :) My daughter will be happy to know that she will be able to read this book on her Nook... and I think I'll read it myself... on my Kindle! :) hehe....

I've enjoyed all Julie Klassen's novels. And I believe they are appropriate for a 12 year old. They are clean novels, and well written. Lady of Milkweed Manor is my favorite.

I can't put it down and I read all of the time!! I have read all the top sellers and classics for years. I am a 30 year veteran teacher. Keep up the good work!

My daughter is 12 and is wanting to read this book... is it appropriate for a 7th grader? I haven't read it myself... Thanks

I hope you aren't writing about The Apothecary's Daughter. It was one of the best novels I've read in a long, long time.
