This was a blow to his parents for two reasons. The first was they were both the only children in a long lines of highly respected magical families, and the second was Jeffery had not been born until his mother was thirty-two years old and his father forty.
To his parent great surprise and greater joy, Portia became pregnant at forty-one. His brother, James, was born about two months after Jeffery’s tenth birthday. From an early age it was evident that James had inherited his parents’ magical talent.
Since James’ birth their mother was frequently bedridden, Jeffery had to tend to his baby brother’s needs quite often and James came to rely on Jeffery.
