The Girl Without Hands Summary

A man is tricked by the devil and promises his daughter to the devil. The daughter, however, is so pure the devil can have nothing to do with her. He hopes to make the daughter unclean by having her hands cut off. This ploy does not work and he is forced to leave her alone. The girl goes out into the world where she is married to a king. The devil again interferes and the queen is sent away because it is believed the king wants her dead. She goes to the house of an angel where she is allowed to stay for free. After learning she is not dead, her husband the king finds her and her son there. During the time she was away, her hands have miraculously regrown.
