Illustrations by Errol Le Cain and Written by Antonia Barber – The princess believes that she is the daughter of the Enchanter with whom she lives in an isolated castle. She has no name other than “Daughter”, and she has vague dreams in which she can remember another life, in which she has a name.
 
She grows lonely and frustrated, and the Enchanter gives her books to read, in an attempt to distract her. This was a mistake, because in these books she learns about all kinds places and things, and especially about brothers, sisters, and mothers.
