  1. A Lady’s Introductory Guide to Poisons, because the apple tastes funny and she does not like the new staff whom her husband has been hiring.


  2. A Compendium of Alchemy, sort of, because the Crescent Moon is propitious and maybe the stars are aligned… And surely that apple is turning into gold! Sooner or later…
    Sigh, how sad’s being the wife of a man so good but so much older and so often absent on business…
