A little pronunciation note.

As Matthew, in Chapter 4, I have to say the name of the hired boy — "Jerry Buote" — a name I've never heard pronounced. I did a little Internet searching, and it seems when that name is attached to a Prince Edward Island person of French/Acadian extraction, it's pronounced "BeeYOT" I mention this because I guess we'd like to be consistent. As far as I can see, the only other people who have to say that name will be the Narrator (in Chapters 11 and 14) and Marilla (in Chapter 21). If anyone has a more authoritative pronunciation, I'll gladly defer.

Thanks for the research, Bruce! I had wondered about that one.

Thanks, Bruce! I'll remember that for Ch. 21.

I see you don't have a DPL yet, do you need one 8-)

Sarah, you're down for Mrs. Allan, thanks!

David, I will put you down for Mr. Phillips, and yes, I do need a DPL, thank you for asking. :D

I'll add David to the project as DPL, and will move us to Dramatic Works!

I was going to hold off on asking for a role but can't resist! May I read Josi Pye?

Rashada, of course you may! Have fun being as nasty as anyone gets in this book, which is not all that nasty. :D

Here's Mrs. Allan:

Files are unprocessed. I normally noise clean with
noise reduction: 8-12 dB
frequency smoothing: 50 Hz
attack/decay time: 0.01 sec
and I might amplify these as well. Please do whatever you like with them, of course.

It's funny that Mrs. Allan has so few lines given how important she was in Anne's life. I'm happy, though, as I'm only capable of bit parts. :)

Thanks, Sarah! Yes, I was surprised by the small number of lines for quite a few of the characters as I was putting the sections together--Miss Stacy, Mrs. Allan, and Gilbert in particular. I think all of them have more lines in Anne of Avonlea, which maybe we'll do next if this one proves popular. :D
