The Empty Sack by Basil King (1859 - 1928) - dc.

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-empty-sack-by-basil-king/

The book follows the fortunes of Jennie Follett, a New York artist’s model, and Teddy, her brother. After their father’s dismissal from his lowly position in the bank and his subsequent death, the family struggles financially. In desperation, Teddy steals money from the bank where he also works, with disastrous consequences. Jennie meanwhile agrees to marry Bob Collingham, a member of a seriously rich banking family, who has fallen in love with her.

  • 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!

Perhaps you've forgotten (or perhaps I'm mistaken) but it seems the book has an additional section (#29; Part 4,Chapter 5) that has yet to be completed.
