Wanted, by Pansy (1841 - 1930).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/wanted-by-pansy/
Rebecca Meredith has endured much in her twenty-seven years: She lost her mother and two siblings, bore the heart-ache of being jilted by her fiancé, and suffered the sting of her father’s remarriage. With a new Mrs. Meredith installed to run the household and help her father, Rebecca doesn’t know where she fits in. She needs a place to call her own, a place to feel wanted and needed.

Determinedly, she sets out to make her own way in the world and finds employment in the McKenzie household as a nurse-companion to the family’s youngest daughter. Soon, Rebecca grows to love the little girl with as much fervor as she learns to dislike the child’s father. Mr. Deane McKenzie is arrogant, selfish and overbearing and Rebecca suspects he mistreats his invalid wife. Surely Mrs. McKenzie needs Rebecca’s help and Rebecca is determined to protect her. But things are not quite what they seem and family secrets, once learned, make Rebecca re-examine how she can help the family most.

The entire McKenzie family will need Rebecca’s prayers and God’s intervention if they are ever to be made lovingly whole again; and Rebecca may just find their home is the one place she belongs, after all. ( Cribbed from Goodreads - to be changed before cataloging)

  • 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 didn't sing Silent Night. I felt they had enough singers. ;)

In the meantime, I've recorded some group project stuff. But now I'm starting in on this. First chapter uploading now!

Good, because apparently I uploaded the flac file rather than the mp3. No wonder it was taking so long! :roll: (It's almost 3 times the file size of the mp3.)

Uploading the edited chapter now. It's uploading very slowly - I bet Kevin is using my bandwidth. :p

We'll see. :) I've got the sniffles, and Kevin is home, so I probably won't be recording today or tomorrow.
