Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows is the seventh and final book in J.K. Rowlings Harry Potter series. Voldemort is continuing to accumulate power and it is up to Harry, Ron, and Hermoine to find the remaining Horcruxes to defeat him once and for all. When the Death Eaters descend upon Hogwarts, it leads to a battle that will affect the future of the wizarding world forever.

The next morning Harry can’t believe that Ron has really left them for good. Hermione is devastated and she cries for weeks after begging Ron not to leave. Harry and Hermione pack up and leave their campsite with heavy hearts. Ron does not show up.

As the days pass, Harry becomes hopeless as the weight of what he still has left to do engulfs him. They still don’t know where the sword is, or where the other Horcruxes are. Harry and Hermione make no mention of Ron, and their nights are silent and grim.

One night, weeks later, as Christmas is approaching, they decide to check out Godric’s Hollow and see if they can find any information and clues there. Harry is anxious to visit his home and his parents' graves, and he’s hoping they’ll get to talk with Bathilda Bagshot, the magical historian who was a great friend of Dumbledore’s. Harry and Hermione talk themselves into believing Dumbledore wanted them to go to Godric's Hollow.

When they get to Godric’s Hollow a few days later, they discover it’s Christmas Eve. On his parents' graves are the words: "The last enemy to be destroyed is death." A realization hits Harry that his parents are gone, and he can’t hold back his tears. Hermione holds his hand and magics some Christmas roses to put ontheir graves.
