    Summary

    The old man who’d seen her, Jonsey Hillock—he was an old man, addled by pain when he’d stumbled into the light of the watchtower the previous night, slurring incoherently about witches. The man was blue with cold and had lost at least two pints’ blood through a gore to an inexpertly bandaged leg. “The Stone Witch is back, she’s come back,” he’d moaned. “And she made me fly.”

    Summary

    When Aven woke up on an otherwise unremarkable autumn morning, his mother was gone. This in itself was not noteworthy - she could have been out before dawn gathering herbs with the moonlight-kissed dew still on them, or gone into the village with a hunch that young Mrs. Norton's baby was on its way soon, or sitting by her beehive to tell the swarm the latest news and hear what they had learned in their travels. What was unusual was that she had apparently left without her boots, hat, or broom. In fact it was more than unusual - it was unheard of.

    Summary

    "Nine months later the witch had a son and nobody knew why. Witches never had sons. In living memory there had never been a single one, but there he was: a tiny little thing with enormous dark eyes and miniature fingernails, wailing or gurgling or giggling to himself in the corner of the room when the people of the city went to see her for their spells and potions and petty little curses. His name was Linden after the tall trees outside and the linden flower tea the witch had craved while he was growing inside her: linden to help vomiting and a regret that was almost unbearable."
