Hi, I am looking for someone to pl The Castles of Athlin and Dunbayne by Ann Radcliffe. A DPL is preferred, but casual listeners are very welcomed. Here is the summary:
Ann Radcliffe is the founder of the gothic novel. This novel is no exception. The wicked baron murdered the good earl's father twelve years before the
novel began. Only twelve years later, free from his mother's wishes, can the earl seek revenge. Meanwhile, Mary, the earl's beautiful sister is falling
in love with a peasant. Yet her brother was abducted by the baron and he wants to marry her. She may have to wed him in order to secure his return. We
see Mary's conflict along with a description of her brother's captivity. This book has everything: murder, revenge, battles, damsels in distress, aristocrats,
captives, secrets, and, most of all, love. It is a love story in every sense: the love to the Scottish highlands in which it is set, the family love that
binds almost above all else, and of course the love between men and women. This short work would later influence Radcliffe's other works. Radcliffe had
an influence on Jane Austin, Mary Shelley, and many others who wrote popular gothic novels. ( Stav Nisser and Wikipedia )

Looking forward to seeing you there.
