Two orphaned children manage to outwit a witch and return to their rightful home. In this fantasy, a young girl sets out to find her brother who has fallen under the spell of an evil witch. In language as resonant as bells, a renowned novelist tells of young courage outwitting old evil. To begin, a boy must confront a subtle witch, next, a great cat who sleeps with its eyes open, then, a giant oak encircled by wolves and a worm, all to reach the Well of the Wind. When the boy does not return, his sister starts out alone to seek him. "Who hates you so much that they send you there?" asks a thin stranger when he hears of her brother's quest. The girl journeys on, whistling, and comes to a gate between two trees in the wood of the witch, then a tower filled with rising water, a bird and a bow and arrow, and finally her brother, turned to stone. "We got from that," the girl tells the boy once she has freed him from the witch's enchantment. "Perhaps we shall get from this." Like all good endings, theirs is both surprising and perfect

A woman was reading a book to a child on her knee. So the little boy went into the wood, and he met a witch. Professor Colin Whisterfield spends his days at Jodrell Bank, using the radio telescope to look for his lost sister in the Pleiades. At night, he is on Alderley Edge, watching. The Watcher cuts the rock and blows bulls on the stone with his blood, and dances, to keep the sky above the earth and the stars flying. Colin cannot remember; and he remembers too much. Before the age of thirteen is a blank. After that he recalls everything: where he was, what he was doing, in every minute of every hour of every day. Everything he has read and seen. And then, finally, a new force enters his life, a therapist who might be able to unlock what happened to him when he was twelve, what happened to his sister. But Colin will have to remember quickly, to find his sister. And the Watcher will have to find the Woman. Otherwise the skies will fall, and there will be only winter, wanderers and moon
