    Summary

    They dance every day of the summer, and through the harvest turning. They do without a piper for most of them, and often only seven or five or just two women can come to the courtyard and stand for dances are meant for a dozen, for every woman of a household together.
    But there is someone standing there in the court of the Women’s Place each morning, so every day Murna comes out to them and stops on the edge of the beaten ground.

    Summary

    Quick sketch/design of Murna, ch. 8.
    Pretty flagrant borrowing from Waterhouse, as he is the acknowledged master of painting unhappy people holding chalices.

    Summary

    She could hear High Eye as she approached the round structure. He made a strange loud sound over and over. She thought of mourning doves and wolves, but he did not quite sound like either. ... He was on his knees and had his face in his hands. Under the flower-smells he always put all over himself he smelled like he was badly hurt. He smelled like salt too.

    Summary

    For Murna, it had been as if she expected to take up an ill-balanced blade that had once slipped and cut her, and found instead a bright and shining dirk that fit her hand as if made for it.

    Murna and Conory pick up the pieces, after the events of the book.
