Whispering Tongues, by Homer Greene (1853 - 1940)
Parmenter and Lee are good friends who attend Concord College. But a hazing incident tears the friendship apart, and affects the lives of both the hazers and the hazee. Another heart-warming tale of disgrace and redemption from Homer Greene. (Summary by Donald Cummings)

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded 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 Jo,

I found that there's not enough front matter for a separate section (dedication, short poem verse), so I'll add it to the first chapter. Can you delete section 0 for me?

Thank you,

Hi Kevin,

Section 1 is available for PL (17:39).

Like your Frank Merriwell project, this one's also got some singing in it. I certainly won't win awards for my musical abilities. :lol:

Thank you,

PL OK! (Even the singing!)

Your ending silence is a second or two over what's recommended, but I wouldn't think that's a problem.
