Stories about a woman with power to heal, but no powers of speech; a princess whose uncle leaves her deep in a cave to die at the hands of a stagman.  Another young woman raised to be a witch alongside the witch's troll son; and a girl who finds the knot in the grain of her new house’s attic, which leads her on a magical mission.
