The Long Road Home, part 6
Celebrían knew, before the ship appeared over the horizon, that Elrond was near. She knew, before it reached shore, that it carried neither her sons nor her daughter. She knew, too, that Mother was aboard; but not Father.
In the joy of her reunion with her husband she would not think of those not there. Those sorrows would come later.
Finally came the courage to unfold letters she would have preferred not to get; from her sons, from Arwen, and then from Father. “I cannot abandon my people, or my grandchildren. But my heart, now, is all in Valinor.”
