Nice arcing romance that takes into account everything that's happening around Merry and Estella. Estella has quite a bit of spunk for a Bolger, and this story illustrates why she's such a good match for Merry. The two of them compliment each other nicely, and I think the story does a good job at showing the changes and growth in these two characters, particularly after Merry comes back from the Quest and finds Estella in the Lockholes. It's as much a tale of the different characters as it is of the romance between them, and I like that very much.
