Excitement happens when Cookie gets a book deep within the stacks.

It all began one day deep in the stacks of Candlekeep in the Cookery section. As usual, when Cookie wanted to choose a new book, he would go to the Cookery section, spin in a circle three times with a finger pointed out. Wherever his finger pointed, was the book he chose to read. Funny enough, his book was always on the lower half of the shelves well within his reach. Today, as he was checking his surroundings and getting into position, just about to close his eyes, he felt the air around him grow chilly. A cloud of vapor begins to shimmer along the nearby shelves, growing thicker around a nondescript leather bound book. The mist suddenly coalesces into the vague form of a young woman a translucent spirit wearing a servant's uniform and bearing the symbol of a tree outlined by a rising sun at her shoulder. The figure weeps aloud, tears running down her cheeks. She opens her mouth as if to speak which reveals that her tongue is gone. Moaning in anguish, she reaches toward Cookie. Then the mist shreds away to nothing, and the spirit faded away. Looking on the floor, there is the book that the mist was holding, Sarah of Yellowcrest Manor

Sarah of Yellowcrest Manor is a leather-bound book with brass corner fittings and an intricately carved brass clasp that holds the book shut. Embossing on the cover depicts a lemon tree with the rising sun behind it. The book's title appears handwritten on the first page, and it is clear that all of its pages were once blank. Only a handful of pages at the end of the book remain so. The rest are filled with handwriting that starts out crude but slowly becomes more elegant, hinting that it was produced by a person learning to write, who then practiced their writing by keeping a diary.
