I read Son of a Witch a few months back. I couldn't really get into it. The whole mystery was if Liir was the son of the witch. So the last chapter they recall witch gets it on with this guy that she'd been into...he sees a scar on her from when she gave birth at some point... I can't recall Wicked so well... did they have a long lived relationship? They imply the kid is his....but i thought her going to the convent and subsiquently having the kid was after they knocked the boots... So how is he seeing the scar... did i miss where she went to the convent, gave birth unknowingly, left the kid and went back to knock boots with the dude...I should reread Wicked but I'd been too focused on that answer and not be patient for the first half of the book and actually reading the content...I just want a time line explaining what they try to explain in son of a witch. I also shouldn't care this much about such a little detail...

Heh. I actually pulled Son of a Witch off the shelf to start reading at lunch today. :)

Anyway, if you're talking about Fiyero, they got together before the convent. In fact, it was his murder at her house that sent her there. She didn't have the kid before then, but I always felt like the alluded to Liir being Fiyero's son in Wicked (even though they never said it and we didn't know if Elphaba was his mom. It was just something I assumed).

So, you're not remembering Wicked wrong. Once I finish the book, I'll totally email Gregory Maguire and say "Yo, check your timeframe there, dude. You messed up the book."
