"If I Could Hold Back Time..."

There had been glimpses of the child in the babe, and glimpses of the girl in the child. Now, Éowyn could see glimpses of the young woman to come in her daughter.

Éowyn’s childhood had not always been happy. Life for her girlhood self she remembered as a time of laughter and light. But she remembered young womanhood as a time of encroaching loss and horror.

She wanted to take this girl and hold her tight, hold her vice-like to herself, and stop her growing any more.

Impossible, she knew. Better, then, to make her daughter’s memories ones of joy.


*As the actress said to the bishop....
