A Game of Thrones
A Feast for Crows
Masha's nephew, the father of Jeyne and Willow per a semi-canon source, re-opens the inn, bringing in whores to attract customers. He is eventually slain, by Rorge or by an unknown lord. Jeyne and Willow reopen the inn for business, and as a refuge for orphan children. The sisters ally with the brotherhood without banners, and Gendry comes to work for the inn as a smith.
Jeyne is away with the brothehood when Brienne of Tarth's party arrives at the crossroads inn. The remnants of the Brave Companions threaten Willow and the inn's children, and Brienne fights them off, but is severely injured. After the fight is over, Jeyne arrives and takes care of Brienne, dressing her wounds and splinting her broken arm. Jeyne and Gendry bring Brienne and her companions, Podrick Payne and Ser Hyle Hunt, to a cave to meet with Lady Stoneheart.
