Merlin was a child of spring, his birth promising happier times after a long, lonely winter. Hunith loved her son fiercely from the first.

He revealed his big surprise well before he turned one. There he lay in his little cot, smiling up at her, his eyes glowing golden, his simple wooden toys dancing in the air above his head.

Amazed and very proud, Hunith's first instinct was to throw the window wide open and shout it to the world: Her beautiful boy had inherited his father's gifts! Merlin was a wonder!

Instead she hurriedly pulled the heavy winter-curtains shut.
