The Stolen Singer, by Martha Bellinger (1870 - 1960).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: [https://librivox.org/the-stolen-singer-by-martha-bellinger/]

Agatha Redmond, a popular soprano, is kidnapped in New York City by thugs unknown, shortly after she learns of a hefty inheritance from a friend of her mother's. Coming to her rescue is a wealthy young businessman named James Hambleton, late of Lynn, MA, --and this is just the first two chapters. ( Matt Pierard)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/17495
  • 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!

Sorry for the delay in setting this up. My phone wouldn't download the book. Let me know if anything needs fixing. You made the book sound so interesting that I took the liberty of making myself the dpl. If you have someone else in mind, please let me know.

I'm cool with that, Dave. It's a good read and I'll start editing and uploading asap. Looks like the author only has one other book, a 1927 non-fic work on theater. She reminds me of Oppenheimer and Tarkington here.

I've uploaded Ch 1, and added chapter titles up to 14. Ch. 3 is the name of Vera's disastrous play in 'Auntie Mame', btw. :D
