Frodo lifted the bowl from the hearth, removing the muslin cloth to tip an elastic ball of dough onto the floured kitchen table. It landed with a satisfying plop, and he cut it into smaller pieces, rolling them into balls to set aside as he worked on the first. The rhythm was soothing. Pull, tuck, turn … pull, tuck, turn.

Nowadays, Frodo liked to make his own bread for it reminded him of Sam's mother. The memory was still bitter-sweet, for she had died only last summer, but he could think of no better way to honour Bell Gamgee's memory.
