That Unfortunate Marriage by Frances Eleanor Trollope (1835 - 1913).


This is the funny, romantic, slightly tongue-in-cheek story of how little May Cheffington makes her way in the world despite being the sole surviving product of "that unfortunate marriage." ( Angela Rowland)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/35943
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I can set this up for you :)

ETA:
We have a MW! :thumbs: I think you're all set. I shortened the filename a little -- and, as usual, you don't have to fill in ID3 tags unless you particularly want to.

I see on Gutenberg that there are three volumes of That Unfortunate Marriage. But this project will just be volume one, or.. all three? (I'm looking at the number of chapters in the first volume and your sections). I'm just curious! It'll be fine either way:)

If you're looking for a DPL we can add a tilde (~) to the title.

Thanks to both of you for picking this up. There are three volumes with a total of 45 chapters; I plan to do all of them in a one-volume recording. I think I was supposed to insert Gutenberg URLs for all three volumes.

I sometimes have to go a couple of months without making any progress, but I will stick with it!
