I found this to be quite uneven, although, perhaps intentionally so. Still, one minute Eowyn's heart is twisting with painful memories and then next she's allowing herself to enjoy the scene ... transitions were cobbled together, didn't flow and disturbed the hope of peace the author tried to find.

Movie-verse--Eowyn and Faramir remember past Yules while looking at the decorations for this one, interrupted by rampaging Hobbits and irate wizards. But love abides here, and tales and gifts help to confirm that past loves and future loves are yet entwined together.
