I am not a perfectionist. You will understand why I say this when you read Chapter 41. Although I am aware of the hitch in its step, I'm still publishing it as is. As buried in paperwork as I am currently, I haven't the stamina at this late hour to edit it properly.
Yet, I'm so close to the end of the story. There are two chapters and one epilogue left after this one. Well, those are left and a few surprises. I shouldn't use the term surprises as that implies possible fireworks. Who knows what you'll think of them.
All I ask is for you to tell me where you think the hitch is in Chapter 41. Maybe there is more than one?
