An Unwilling Guest by Grace Livingston Hill (1865 - 1947).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/an-unwilling-guest-by-grace-livingston-hill/
A young society woman travels to the country to visit her aunt, only to end up as the unwilling guest of a neighboring family. The daughter is not so sure how to deal with this unpleasant circumstance. The young man of the household has met her before. Through them, she gains new perspectives on life, faith, and love.

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    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!

I didn't find the mc you said... also, I'm a first time recorder and I'm having some doubts. Do I upload chapter per chapter, individually through the MC?

Wondermelon, sorry I'm on my phone and can't type much but this is a SOLO project. If you click on any of the Readers Wanted threads, you will be able to volunteer for a project there. :)

BUT first....

Here's the handy dandy Newbie Guide to Recording, and if you haven't posted a 1-minute test, that's a first step.

Thank you. :)

I'm not sure this matters, but on my Dashboard Projects screen, for this book the title appears as "Unwilling Guest" only without the "An" in front of it, but in all other places it appears correct as the full title.

A, an, and the are frequent first words in book titles. These "articles" are dropped so that the title is listed alphabetically using the next word (e.g "unwilling" for this book).
