Book of the Month

The Amulet of Elements

fantasy, adventure, romance, adult fairy tale

amulet of elements

Princess Ellyria Rose found her special places in the books she read. Imagining herself in far off lands, she would dream of the knight who might rescue her one day from her dull, everyday life of needlepoint and lessons on becoming a lady.

Princess Ellyria Rose yearned for adventure and on her sixteenth birthday she got her wish, being rescued by the man of her dreams. Little did she know that would prove to be an adventure she did not expect to have.

Betrayed by the very man whom Princess Ellyria trusted, and left at the mercy of her father’s enemy, she had to use her wits to escape; along with the help of the very man who led her astray in the beginning.

Danger unfolds time and again, revealing an ancient story about a princess and a prophecy.

Word of the Month

genesis

The word genesis can be traced back to the Greek gignesthai meaning “to be born.” When written with a capital G, it refers to the first book of the Bible, but it is often used in a non-biblical sense to mean “an origin, creation, or beginning.”

Upcoming Library Events 

Frances, Wright Writer of Dayton member, is the speaker at the Stirring Up Food and Memories Seminar. A cookbook can contain more than recipes, it can be a historical document for your family. One that contains the stories behind the food. Preparing food and family dinners can evoke memories and emotions; as you eat, you may think of family, friends, and events related to those foods. Learn how to create and organize your own family cookbook to save not just recipes, but the memories of those important to you.

Book of the Month

Whispers of Time
Chronicles of Asaetara Book 1

Whispers of Time

In the world of Asaetara, an ancient magic has torn open the paths between worlds. An unknown banner begins to gather the forces of evil together in the shadows. Rin Rilavaenu has struggled her entire life to please her father, the elven king. Much to her dismay, Rin discovers the elf she is so desperate to make proud is not her real father. After this revelation throws Rin’s world into complete turmoil, on the day of her comping of age ceremony, her soul is torn from her body when unknown magic is forced out by her enemies. After years of searching, Kaedin, Rin’s bonded dragon, finds her when her soul begins to awaken inside of Sara, a nineteen-year-old human girl from Earth. How can they close the paths torn open between worlds? Who is behind this and what do they wish to gain? Rin’s friends and family embark on a journey to an unfamiliar world to bring her home, while they struggle to prepare for a war that could destroy everything in not only their world but ours as well.

Word of the Month

desideratum

Did You Know?

We’d like to introduce you to some close cousins of the common word desire. All trace their roots to the Latin sīder-, or sīdus, which has historically been understood to mean “heavenly body,” but which may also have an older, non-celestial meaning of “mark, target, goal.” Whether etymologically starry or grounded, dēsīderāre, meaning “to long for,” was born when Latin de- was prefixed to sīder-. Dēsīderāre begat Anglo-French desirer, which in turn brought forth English desire, desirous, and desirable in the 13th and 14th centuries, with desideration following in the 15th. Then, in the 17th century, English acquired desiderate (“to wish for”) and desideratum (desiderata in the plural), all of which can lay claim to direct ancestry from desiderare.

Examples

“The strength of his class depended to some extent on sound money management—but depended to a much larger extent on marriages based cynically on the sorts of children likely to be produced. Healthy, charming, wise children were the desiderata.” — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., The Sirens of Titan, 1959
