Merry and Esmaralda, a given canon marriage, but how on earth did they fall for each other. The author gives you a wonderful insight in how, according to her, they came to know each other better. With this she uses the hobbit culture and convention as a solid base. I love the way she let this romance evolve, in such a tender and humorous way that made me chuckle. True to Tolkien and true to the book: an excellent story.
