A Feast for Crows
Masha's nephew runs the inn as a brothel, but he is eventually slain. According to a semi-canon source, he was the father of Jeyne and Willow. The sisters reopen the inn for business and as a refuge for orphan children.
Jeyne is away with the brotherhood without banners when Brienne of Tarth's party arrives at the crossroads inn. After the encounter with the remnants of the Brave Companions at the inn, Jeyne takes care of Brienne, who is severely injured after the battle, dressing her wounds and splinting her broken arm. She helps bring Brienne and her companions, Podrick Payne and Ser Hyle Hunt, to a cave to meet with Lady Stoneheart.
