The Tears of Jenny Greenteeth
This is a tale from a time younger than ours, where love and forgiveness overcome fear, sadness and greed. A tale where nature triumphs over the poison of industry. A Miller’s daughter is swept away in the mill race, her parents left transformed by grief. The people of Greenwater live in fear as their children disappear - suspecting they are being taken and drowned by the Miller - Jenny - whilst her devastated husband creates an industrial complex and an army of workers, his skills as a magical toymaker transformed to pursue wealth. Many in the town benefit from the riches, but the society becomes divided and a social wasteland mirrors the industrial one. An unexpected return precipitates change - but it’s a race between disaster and redemption.
