Lux has lost everything when Else finds her, alone in the woods. Her mother, her lover, her home - all burned. The world she inhabits is full of suspicion for women like her, neither maiden nor mother, especially since the sickness came. But Lux is smart; she knows how to blend into the background, how to manipulate people's expectations, how to defend herself. And she knows a lot about poisons. From the snowy winter woods to the bright midnight sun of the far north; from the horrors of plague to the relief of healing; from lost and powerless to finding your path, 'Now She is Witch' questions the binary oppositions that still shadow our lives today.
