Okay, proof listening checks out now; I'll get the preliminary catalog page together and get back to you.

Can you provide a brief summary for the catalog page?

How's this? Too short?

Written in 1921, this is the final book in L. M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables series. Set during World War I, it shows the courage and endurance of the sisters, mothers and wives (and brothers and fathers) left to tend the home front. The main focus of the book is on Anne and Gilbert's youngest daughter, Rilla.

Hi Karen, I've just found my way to LibriVox and am currently listening to your reading of RoI - I just wanted to tell you, that I love your voice! It's so easy to understand and pleasant to listen to. Thank you :-)

More fan mail. I managed to tear myself away from Song of Myself long enough to get through half of Rilla (I'm going slow -- repeating chapters two or three or even more times to make sure I get the sense of them). This is research for a novel I have in hand, but your work has made it pure pleasure.

An added bonus to someone who has Parkinson's, i.e., can't always hold a book, and can't always sleep! Many a dark hour has been populated by Montgomery's characters animated by your voice. Particularly like it when you sing.

It's also good, being the Canuck that I am, to hear "Waco, Texas" prefaced to each chapter; it reminds me how well literature travels, and that national treasures make better international ambassadors.

Well done and well done, Gypsy.

Glad you hear you enjoyed Karen's readings. You may want to check out her other readings. I especially enjoyed her reading of "The Scarlet Pimpernel".
