    Summary

    In the spring of 1930, Wilder Mayer's stepfather dies, and Wild is summoned back from Agricultural School in Lubbock to take the reins of the Meyer-Platter farm just outside of Lea, Texas. Over the course of the next five years, Wild must negotiate not just the politics of his little farm community, but also an increasingly mystical and complex relationship with the old town church, closed for many years and a source of mystery within Lea.

    The worst storms of the Dust Bowl are raging across the country, but they always seem to miraculously pass by, leaving Lea's farms unscathed. Instead, Lea is subject to strange happenings: the birth of Wild's witchy daughter Iscah, the rise of the cult that calls itself the Church of the Redeemed Abandoned, and a series of rare but gruesome murders, culminating in an attack on the heart of Wild's family itself -- and a final encounter with the church that has protected Lea for so long.

    Summary

    "How is it possible that neither of you thought to pay attention to the moon cycle?"

    "It was cloudy," Harry said. "And we were drunk. We were very, very drunk."

    "This just gets better," Hermione said. "How could you have been so stupid?"

    "In my defence," Harry said, "I had no idea that I should have been paying attention to the moon cycle. I'm not going to lie, I didn't even know men could get pregnant. It's been like, one long life lesson all round."

    Or: the one where Harry accidentally gets Draco pregnant, both of them fail to talk about their feelings, and in the end, there's a baby.

    Summary

    “Traditionally, of course, the princess in question would have met with her suitors on arrival.” Mother pauses meaningfully to eye Gwendolyn. “The princess in question could still greet the remaining lords when they arrive.”

    “Could,” says Gwen with her mouth full. “Shan’t.”

    Summary

    “Pensieves are subjective, just like memories are,” Remus continued. “So I can’t just—pull out memories of Hogwarts and play them like films for you to show you exactly what happened. A lot of it is sort of fuzzy and fragmented and it’s not a reliable record of events. But I thought it might be helpful.”

    Sirius considered the fact that circumspect, reserved Remus Lupin was offering to crack open his mind and let Sirius inside. “All right then.”

    Memory magic, across three eras.
