The Sacred Herb by Fergus Hume (1859 - 1932).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-sacred-herb-by-fergus-hume/
A rich playboy comes home from travels abroad and is bully-ragged by his eccentric aunt into finding meaning for his life. This he does by helping a school chum save his fiancée from the gallows and the playboy falls head over heels in love with the fiancée. A web of deception and lies is revealed and also a long list of who loves who filled with how much each is willing to accept. The colorful cast includes a south sea captain, a fortuneteller, and a colorful doctor who is an authority on the inhabitants and customs of Easter Island. Then, of course, there is the sacred herb!—Enjoy!!(Summary by Sharon Kilmer)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/55642
  • 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!

Chapter 1 is ready for review!

This is a lot different than my last book. As Richard says "you are no longer a little girl." So I have to grow up
and I am enjoying this book already. Hope you will also.

Thank you,

Sharon :D

Hi,
Chapters 1 and 2 are both PL OK!

The author doesn't waste much time setting up the story, a trial is already underway. :!:
