Every year the Elders in the Protectorate leave a baby in the woods to appease an evil Witch and keep their village safe.  It turns out Xan is a very kind witch and just rescuing the poor babies she finds and placing them with loving families in nearby cities. One year Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight filling the child with magic. With the help of a poetic swamp monster and an adorable teeny tiny dragon Xan decides to raise Luna as her own in hopes that she can teach her what she needs to know about the tricky business of magic  Meanwhile the Protectorate remains a city in a haze of sorrows until a young carpenter sets about to save his own future child. As she did in the Witch's Boy, Barnhill proves she is a masterfully storyteller weaving together a deeply moving and powerful fairy tale.
