Section 03:

This is not an easy read -- odd names and tons of consonants crashing into each other!

Yeah, Rita, some of these older books can be like that, with a little different syntax, too, than we're used to! Luckily, editing can make us sound lovely despite the stumbles and fumbles the old style writing causes. :) It's like magic!

Hey, Stav, why don't I also take section 7 and close that gap.

Sure, you may have section 7. That would be lovely.
And hay, these books are dificalt to read. But when you listen to them... They are enchanting.
Love M. E. Braddon? Try The Lady's Mile. Want to read about children? Try On Angel's Wings or The Ship Of Stars. Want to read about growing up? Try Miss Crespigney.

Rita, you did a nice reading for this chapter! It can be PL OK just as it is if you want it to be. Just let me know.

*If* you feel like fine-tuning one spot, right at 7:59, the "of" inside "suit women of her stamp" has an abruptness that is a tiny bit distracting. Are you using Audacity? (Just because that's the only recording software I'm familiar with.) If so, if you zoom way in on that spot, and highlight only the word "of," give it 2 or 3 negative Amplification bumps and see if it gives it a smoothing effect inside the whole phrase. And if this suggestion is Greek to you, just message me and I'll explain in more detail what I mean by the neg Amp application.

And Chapter 5 is PL OK :thumbs:

It's nice to listen to your reading. :) Be careful not to let your front silence be too short - less than .5 seconds, and the beginning of the Intro can get cut off when a listener plays the book.

Thank you for this very lovely reading, Grace.

There is only one minor edit to make - Instead of the 5 seconds of silence at the end, there is about 7 minutes. File should be clipped off at 14:24. :)
