There comes a day when you believe everything is finished and then there is a beginning. For me The Lord of the Rings was that beginning. At the hardest point in my life one day I picked up The Hobbit which I hadn’t read since my dad first read it to me when I was 6. As soon as I started reading it I was engrossed in the story. Through tough times I read all of the Lord of the Rings books again and again. Middle Earth gave me a chance to escape into something of a dangerous paradise.
