    Summary

    It wasn’t even a jug. It was a plate, painted with a ring of trees seen from above, and glazed with a dark green wash that suggested deepest shadow. It made him cold to look at it. He must be going crazy, throwing and painting and firing without even seeing what he was doing. He didn’t have the excuse of the Pit. It wasn’t no one’s doing but his own, and if anyone saw it, there might be questions he wouldn’t be able to answer. Because it was the Pit’s clearing. But there wasn't no Pit to be seen.

    Summary

    The very first thing that Iago said to Emelia after they were wed was, "The sun is shining very brightly in the sky."

    As this was their wedding night, she replied, "What do you mean? That is the moon and stars. It's dark out."

    Emelia didn't know to shiver then when Iago stroked her cheek and said, "No, My Love, it is the sun."

    Then again, she hardly knew the man to whom she'd been wed.

    Summary

    The music and noise of the town met them at the gate, and they swept up the main street towards the square. There were jugglers on corners, musicians playing for pennies with wide wooden bowls at their feet, bright streamers strung across the width of the road. They reached the square, and across it, Elinor saw sweet, sad Mistress Alys, her arm tight and possessive in her son’s while Margaret stiffened to alertness beside her, and all the long years of anxious secrecy were nothing, because of course he’d grown up handsome, just as Margaret had grown up fine.

    See end for additional spoiler-y warnings.
