Counting the days  by Lady Bluejay 2 Review(s)

Do you know, this was making me think of a scenario where both of them disguised themselves as their own loyal assistants (sounds very Shakespeare - is it the Merchant of Venice, with Nerissa and Portia switching roles - or another one entirely?), meet and fall for who they think is the wrong person.

I loved Eomer's reluctance to move and his spying on the camp of the Dol Amroth princes. And his assumption that their elegance would be shared with their sister. His immediate horror on seeing an un-beautiful girl is rather shallow - but I hope he would have learned better on actually meeting her.

Of course, he ended up with more than he deserved - but Lothiriel was able to take some consolation in that her father and brothers hadn't done too bad a job in selecting a suitable husband.

Author Reply: You may be right about Shakespeare - but my tome is too large to take with me to look it up! As for Eomer's reaction - Yes, very shallow, but so typically male, don't you think?
