Part 3: Reform, Reform, Reform. And new houses!

Part 2: "Jock" is now online as well: http://sharonmaas.blogspot.de/2013/10/the-booker-prize-backstory-part-2-jock.html

 

Incidentally, Sharon says on Facebook that the story is turning out longer than she had been planning, so it's now going to have four parts instead of the original three.  Part 3 probably due to go live later today, too.
