Help! Does anyone remember a picture book about a female apothecary?

I'm trying to track down a picture book for older kids that I loved when I was a child, but I can't remember the title or the author! Here's what I remember about it:

  • Its main character was a female apothecary, who perhaps moved to the city and caused a stir by being able to heal people
  • I think she was asked by the king to try to make gold, because his alchemists hadn't been able to do it
  • It contained illustrations of a city with coloured minarets; I think some of these were cross-sectional

    Anyone got any idea of what it might be?!
