Bell's Table by elwen of the hidden valley

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

Scenes from life on Bagshot Row in the period from Frodo's arrival to Bilbo's departure.

This is a reworking of a previously published tale.  Some of the chapters remain the same but have switched order, some have been tweaked and some are wholly new.  Just tales from hobbit life in the Shire.  Hobbiton's answer to The Waltons.
