In the time of the buddha,a women named kisagotmi suffered the death of her only child.Unable to accept it,she ran from person to person,seeking a medicine to restore her child to life.The buddha was said to have such a medicine.
Kisagotami went to the buddha,paid homage,and asked,can you make a medicine that will restore My child?
I know such a medicine,the buddha replied but in order to make it,I must have certain ingredients.

Relieved,the women asked,what ingredients do you require?Bring me a handful of mustard seed,said the buddha.The woman promised to procure it for him,but as she was leaving,he added,I require that the mustard seed be taken from a household where no child,parent,or servant had died.

The woman agreed and began going from house to house in search of the mustard seed.At each house the people agreed to give her the seed,but when She asked them if anyone had died in that household,she could find no home where death was not visited,in one house a daughter,in another a servant,in other a husband or a parent had died.Kisagotami was not able to find a home free from suffering of death.Seeing she was not alone in her grief,the mother let go of her child's lifeless body and returned to the Buddha,who said with great compassion,You thought that you alone had lost a son,the law of death is that among all living creatures there is no permanence.

Kisagotmi's search taught her that no one lives free from suffering and loss.This insight didn't eliminate the inevitable suffering that comes,but it did reduce the suffering that came from struggling this sad fact of life.

I'm finally on the last book of this series! I think I've guessed how it's going to end, but it's been such a fun series to read regardless! Recommended if you like sci-fi, time travel and adventure stories.

I started my first Laurie Frankel book a few days ago. Though I'm only four chapters in, I'm excited about these characters! They feel so real and original.
The writing style is reminding me of Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff, so hopefully the read will be as enjoyable.

“The belladonna berries roll in Katharine’s stomach, but she does not wince. It has been more than a month since she had to claw her way up and out of the hearth of the island, and now Katharine can withstand anything…

She taps the cage on the corner of her desk to rouse the small gray mouse inside. It is blind in one eye, and mostly bald from Katharine’s rubbed poisons. She offers it a cracker through the bars of its cage, and it creeps forward, sniffing, afraid to eat it. ‘Once I was a mouse,’ she says, and strips off her glove. She reaches into the cage to stroke the rodent’s tiny bald haunches. ‘But I’m not anymore.'” One Dark Throne, pg. 9

This latest installment in the Library Lover's Mystery series was my birthday present from my mom. Though I haven't yet read the author's London Hat Shop Mystery series, I love that some of the characters from it appear in this book, and that they make so many great library puns. Swipe for a fun little snippet from the text.
