The Children Of The Abbey by Regina Maria Roche (1764 - 1845).

Published in 1796, this novel tells the trials and tribulations of Amanda and Oscar Fitzalan, brother and sister who have to navigate the world with no money or status, and hardly any connections. They find love, yet, again and again, things block the way to happiness and, worse, destroy Amanda's reputation. This is the story of abuse of power, loyalty, and, ultimately, love in many forms. ( Stav Nisser.)
    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/60174
    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.

Huge thanks. Yes it would be better if you set up the mw because I am not sure the text is accessible for me.

hi stav,

i am interested in pling this - but maybe get into troubles with my time management.
i promise to try to pl within a week, should there be problems... and i maybe won't have any troubles at all...
but i think a warning is fair... before i promise too much
you know me :-)

as always: it is your decision - and every decision can be revoked at any time, too :-)

greetings from tyrol!
cheers,
schrm

Hi SCHRM, what a joy to see you here. I love working with you. It would be great to have you as dpl. It would be a slow project I think so there wouldn't be any problems.
