The Child of the Moat by Ian Bernard Stoughton Holborn (1872 - 1935).


Quote:
Ian Holborn (professor of archaeology and a writer) was on board the <i>RMS Lusitania</i> when it was torpedoed, and as it sank he rescued a 12 year old girl named Avis Dolphin. She later complained that books for girls were not very interesting, so he decided to write one for her "as thrilling as any book written for boys!" This book is dedicated to her.<br><br>

From the Preface: This story is not written for grown-ups, and if they want to know why it begins with such a gruesome first chapter, let them ask the children. Children like the horrors first and the end all bright. Many grown-ups like the tragedy at the end. But perhaps the children are right and the grown-ups are standing on their heads. (Summary by Beth Thomas)






    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/53281
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

So glad you picked this up. Once everything is set up, I'll take a chapter or two!

I like to read the first chapter of my own projects, but can I interest you in chapter 2?

Hi Beth,
No problem. There is a lot of dialog in section 2 and I'm having trouble with my voice so I don't think that will work for me. I'll read more of the story and be back later if I can find a chapter suitable to my current limitations.

How about 28, the last adventure? There isn't much dialog there. I understand if you would rather I didn't. I'm not permitted to do voices, yet. Well, actually, probably never again.

Hmmm...this is a really interesting story, can I take Chapter 2: Secrets? I wish I could do more, but I'm not sure I would be able to do it right away since the chapters are a bit long. I'll do this one, and if there are others open after, I'll take a few more.

Quick question, are you pronouncing her name (Aline) A-lean which is more English or Ah-lean, which is more French? I know she's Scottish, but she's also a noblewoman...so I was wondering if you're leaning (no pun intended), one way or another.

I would say it "Ay-lean" but it doesn't matter if it isn't 100% consistent.

Thanks Linny! That's the first chapter of this book recorded! Just the one PL note:

@6:42 the word "feverishly" (referring to being in a "fever" of haste) isn't clear.

Everything else was beautifully read! I haven't PLed for you before, but your reading is lovely and clear and your pace is excellent! :9:
