And Where Are the Children?  by Larner 3 Review(s)
MirkwoodmaidenReviewed Chapter: Epilogue 2 on 12/22/2020

I just had a chance to finish this before I embark upon Christmas cookie making! I love this. It was a well-told and well-crafted story. I love that both Frodo and Sam were somehow able to save what they loved from as far away (both literally and figuratively) as Mordor.

You write the relationship between Sam and Frodo so wonderfully well. Sam still solicitous of Frodo and Frodo still gently chiding him for his solicitude and deference. You write about the Shire so well. I can feel its homely ways through your writing. This was a joy to read.

Try to stay safe, Mellon nin!



Author Reply: I regret I didn't note all your responses. I had a surge to my older computer on which I do my email that literally hid my email program for months. I've tried several times to fix things, but only realized how I could find the missing files a few weeks ago, and hadn't gotten to your last few messages until this morning.

I love thinking how Sam grew from Frodo's "little brother" kind of friend to becoming his peer and the nearest brother of his heart, the two of them going to Mordor together and finding they'd survived it all to return home. I rejoice to think that they were allowed to be reunited in Elvenhome and to go on together on their last adventure.

Thanks so for reading this. I so appreciate your comments. God bless you in this new year--may He bless us all!

And you're writing again! How wonderful! Another lovely Frodo and Sam story of sorting out the Shire and tying up loose ends before Frodo leaves.

Thank you for sharing your stories again.

Author Reply: The last four years have been terribly trying for me, and the knowledge that we will soon be freed of the stain of this administration has helped free me to do more writing. This story has been working at me for a year, and should not have taken so long to write and post! But, at last it is finished and posted, and I rejoice to see it finally being accepted so well.

Thanks so, Freyalyn. I appreciate that so many have been glad to see something new from me.

What an unexpectedly hope-filled Yule for all of them, and I wish the same hope and joy for all of us as well. Thank you for a lovely story.
