I guess, the ending is a bit twee but I don't even care.
I suspect, after all that you've been posting, I might even welcome that sort of ending ...

I'm really curious what you'll make of it. And of the characters. :D
Only one way to find out!

On a related note, have your read ACD's "Danger"? More prescient reading for present times ... from right before WWI.

Is that the one with the surrender?
It's written from the POV of a German U-boat captain and highlights the likely consequences of Britain being cut off from its marine travel and supply routes. ACD felt that, with international tensions rising (and WWI, as it turned out, in fact right around the corner), Britain was woefully unprepared for an attack that would cause such a loss of supply routes -- and the resulting upheaval within the country -- and explicitly meant the story as a warning to government and to the admiralty ... who actually had several of their admirals read and comment on it. In the context of the present circumstances, it makes for chilling reading.

It has ships? I guess we have just found me a Fear the Drowning Sea read. ;)

I had earmarked The Fisherman for this but really don't feel like reading an actual horror novel.
I guess we've found a read for that square indeed then, yes! :) (It's a short story, not a novel ... but I think after all the longer books you've read for the game already, you're overdue for being permitted to cover one square by a single short story.)

I think so, too! ;)
