Curse of the Great Blue Diamond A Fable for Adult Children By: Rosemary Hanagan When Penny, a recently graduated chemist, moves to sleepy Flyattown on the banks of Lake Ontario, she isn’t expecting anything more than a monotonous career developing perfumes. Sure, she’d been warned about the town before moving there, had heard all about the disappearances, the murders, the lake monsters. But those were just stories told by bored residents of a sleepy lakeside town, right? Penny is about to find out that there’s something lurking along the shores of Flyattown. If she’s lucky, she’ll make more allies than enemies and get to the bottom of the mystery, before it’s too late. Dive head first into the mysterious world of Flyattown and see what’s hiding beneath the calm waters of Lake Ontario.

An entertaining and well-researched history of the Hope diamond Since its discovery in seventeenth-century India, the Hope diamond, a glimmering deep blue gem weighing over 45 carats, has been shrouded in mystery and steeped in intrigue. In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Richard Kurin goes beyond the speculation to reveal the truth behind a legendary stone. Kurin, a cultural anthropologist, spent more than a decade on the trail of the legendary gem. But the 'curse' that surrounds it, which Kurin puts to rest once and for all, is only one small piece of a long and lustrous story that moves between ancient religion and modern magic, royal power and class rivalry, revenge and greed. Richly illustrated, Hope Diamond works in a grand historical tradition: depicting the specific to reveal the universal.
