"The Herbalist's Apprentice" a novel

 A Texas Tale of Love and Mystery

by Rosa Morgan

Houston 1850

At seventeen, Mia is bursting with questions about love and life, but none are more pressing than the lavender scented memories concerning her mother's mysterious death. Against her father's wishes, she secretly visits Mosswood, the palatial home of the nefarious Captain Biggs, where she becomes entangled in a web of deception.


Should Mia trust the captain's dashing son, Daniel, whose sincere and refined manners win her heart?

Or the rugged Frenchman, Henri, who is investigating the Biggs family, and whose seductive ways sweep her off her feet?

Desperate for help and guidance, Mia turns to the one person she can trust; Miss Emily, a freed mulatto slave who dispenses pearls of wisdom as adroitly as her herbal tinctures. Apprenticed to her in the art of healing, Mia begs her for the truth behind all the secrets.


When the past and it's mysteries are finally revealed, what dangerous steps will this impetuous young woman take to find justice?
