I received this book through Goodreads first reads.
Interesting premise, and I enjoyed reading about the different ailments and cures. The historical backdrop of this book was well developed, however the story was a bit dry.
Emotions didn't seem to be portrayed very well, and the romance was lacking, almost clique. If something bad, or good occurred, it was almost laid out in textbook style, stating the facts, and not digging into how the characters feel.
I didn't hate the book, but I didn't love it. Hence the 3 stars.
