Recovery – Finduilas POV – 1 of 2
In which Finduilas understands that he wants her back.
There is a lot of recovery going on. Recovering from a season of war, from Thorongil’s departure, and from the threat of civil war. There is also recovering lost ground, usurped territory, and over-extended expectations. Most of all, there is recovering from the damage that this has inflicted on the hearts and psyches of the survivors.
The opening scenes of this chapter chronologically occur at the same time as the last two scenes from the previous chapter. When Denethor is meeting with the Steward and reading Thorongil’s letter, Finduilas is in the garden talking to Brandir and Laanga.
I have a lot of notes on this chapter, but will not post for a bit because of spoilers.
