The Silent Battle by George Gibbs (1870 - 1942).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/the-silent-battle-by-george-gibbs/
This offering from George Gibbs, follows the developing romance between lawyer Tom Gallatin, trying to beat his alcoholism, and debutante Jane Loring. It begins with Tom getting lost while on a hunting trip in the Canadian wilderness, where he has gone in hopes of rehabilitating himself. Attempting to find his way back, he encounters Jane Loring, also lost. Each is attracted to the other, but after a few nips from Jane's flask, Tom steps over the line with her. The seriousness of his actions, as well as his feelings toward Jane, leads him to overcome his addiction.

Meeting again months later, in New York City and civilization, forgiveness and a new start lead to a renewal of the romance, although not free from difficulties.(Donald Cummings)

    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 Don,

Thanks ever so much for catching the public domain line! I make a template for the intro's and endings and then just fill in what's different to fit each chapter, so there's a good chance I would have kept on leaving out the public domain part on the short intro. I've done something like that before, and I don't know why I don't catch it. But again, you've saved me!!

I've corrected chapter 2.

Chapter 3 is ready:

In the second to last verse of the French song in Chapter 3, the line reads, "Il y a longtemps que le t'aime," but it should read, "...que je t'aime." ("I've loved you for a long time." The thought continues, "I'll never forget you," in the last line). So, that's the way I've read it. The "je" refers to "I."

Thanks again! :D

Hi Tony,

Sections 2 and 3 are PL OK! :)

Thanks for catching that French error. It was definitely a printer's error in the original page images. I'll gather it and any others we may find, and submit an errata file to PG at the completion of the project. :)
