Michele--I am so pleased to hear your comments! I have not listened to Sections 1 & 2 yet, but was hopeful that we would be able to keep them and use them. And I would love to have you take sections here whenever your schedule permits! :clap:
Kind regards,
Lucretia

This looked intriguing when I read about it in the abandoned section. I'd like to take Section 5. Do you want the "To be continued" and the "Chapter V - Continued" read as well?

I believe that we should read it as it is written. The second part of Chapter 5 is only about 520 words as I remember, so I didn't see any point in making it a completely separate section. I think that the "To be continued" thing happened because it was first published serially in a monthly magazine.

You are in the MW for Section 05--thank you! :)
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Hi, Jo--I have edited the first post to include a warning to potential readers about some of the terminology that they might encounter in parts of the book. If you feel that the wording of the warning could be improved, feel free to change it. Thanks! :)
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Excellent suggestion! I had already selected "Historical Fiction" for the genre, so I think that we're good there. But I've added "Civil War" and "Confederacy" as additional key words. Thank you! (Sometimes the most obvious choices escape me. :roll: )
Kind regards,

I've been reading ahead a little to see what other chapters I might be able to handle accent-wise. Just letting you know, Chapter 9 introduces several characters and doesn't say where they come from -- north, south, California????? Whoever reads it might have to do a bit of digging first.

Chapter 7 is proving quite challenging to read, including singing! I can barely carry a tune! But I've tried, and it's almost done. So far it's a very good book. Reminds me in scope and sweep of Gone With The Wind and I am enjoying it very much.

Very interesting, Michele--I have not been reading ahead, but just enjoying the narrative as I PL. As far as any regional accents, I'm not hugely particular, but instead hold to the "Do the best that you can" philosophy. Since this is a collaborative project, I'm hoping that any listeners will be flexible and understanding as we move from reader to reader. As far as singing--you are much braver than I am. I would not consider singing--not even humming or whistling! :) No hurry on your sections--take your time.
Kind regards,
Lucretia

Okay, I simply had to know who is who, as all the initial characters seem to disappear at Chapter 9 as we skip 20 years ahead! So I copied the whole book from Chap 9 on into a Word doc, did a Find command for the words Hagar, Ellis, Enson, then Walker, and I suppose it would be well for our readers to know that those same characters are alive and well throughout the book and disguised under other names!

Knowing that, I'd like to claim Chapters 32 - 37 (many are very short), unless you object. The courtroom scene especially resurrects all my favorite characters and will be lots of fun to put together.
