Bessie's Fortune by Mary Jane Holmes (1825 - 1907).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/bessies-fortune-by-mary-jane-holmes/
The coverup of a murder leads to the search for the dead man's heiress decades later in this delightful 3 part novel by Mary Jane Holmes. Her characters are as always very interesting and realistic. Poor little Bessie is raised in poverty because her mother spends most of her time at the gaming tables of Monte Carlo or Baden Baden while her so called aristocratic father looks down on all menial work. Her wealthy relatives will do nothing to help. Add the love of three men for one girl to the mix and the result is an absorbing historical romance. ( Celine Major)

  • 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!

Hi Dave!!! And thanks so much for offering to MC again. :)

I was thinking of saying "Part #, chapter# at the beginning of each section continuing with Part 2 and 3 when I get to them.
Given how long this book is I will combine chapters in sections as I often do. Hope that works for you??

If you prefer another method please feel free to let me know. :-)
