"Men..should have a virtue to shape their lives, amid the powers and chances of the world, beyond the Music of the Ainur, which is as fate to all things else" (Quenta Silmarillion, Chapter 1). A mortal woman is brought to Rivendell for healing in the summer of 3018, and thus becomes entangled with both Men and Elves in the events of the War of the Ring. How will destiny and choice shape the lives of the two Kindreds?

This novel-length story travels from Rohan via Rivendell to Gondor and back again, twining itself in and out of the canon events of LoTR as it goes. Gap-filling, drama, humour, a dash of angst and - eventually - romance between the OFC protagonist and a canon character (so don't say you weren't warned!)

Rated Teens for,in later chapters, some fairly explicit descriptions of the aftermath of battle and for some (non-graphic) sexual content.

Thanks to the good offices of Altariel, e-book versions of the story are now available: .mobi here and .epub here.

Feedback will make me very happy - if even one reader in ten left a comment, that would make this author's day.
