Gosh--thanks so much for the enthusiastic feedback on Chapter 12! (Chie, the illustration was really great! thanks for posting it!) It's so fun to write for this group. And I'll say again, it's an honor to be among you: writers and readers. I still have to work on the table of contents, which I will do. But in the meantime: here's Chapter Thirteen.
And for those who celebrate it, Happy Thanksgiving!
And best regards to all,
