She's sixteen when it starts and twenty-five when it ends.  The progress is not even -- having three pregnancies and four children WILL slow you down -- but even when at home with the children, she's still fighting sometimes, when the monsters go for the stronghold.

Pondering, pondering. . . .

More big, dangerous,dramatic ones than little ones, though those are a background pest.
