What a marvelous story, Linda, and a lovely closing chapter. I enjoyed this story very much, and will be sure to re-read it.

Wonderful story!

I found it very fitting that at the moment when Aragorn was exhausted and full of doubts about his abilities, Gandalf came to show him the way.

And he was right :-)

Ah--he calls and Faramir answers, turning from the Light. Wonderful that they can begin their friendship so, and he is able to regain his confidence in such a manner. And I still rejoice that Bergil was able to find the athelas!

Author Reply: Many thanks for your much appreciated review. I was inspired by Raksha, who was I think the first to hint that Aragorn himself gained through this wonderful healing.It is too easy to overlook Beregond, just a great character.

Hi Linda, I can only agree to the former review. This is one of the best stories Ive read about Aragorn becoming the healer we know him to be. Very well done. Thank you. Lai

Linda, I've already told you, but it bears repeating. I found this last part the perfect ending for this lovely and touching narrative of the difficult path Aragorn had to thread to become a full-fledged healer.

Well done indeed.
