The Cloister and the Hearth by Charles Reade (1814 - 1884).

Set in the 15th century, the Cloister and the Hearth is a story Gerald Eliassoen, a young scribe and illuminator, who travels through seven different countries. Gerald is afraid of persecution from a burgomaster, and so he escapes from Rome to Holland, to search and find a place to make money for his family. His father and mother die, and Gerald's brothers decide to take most of the share, and instead tell Gerald that is wife, Margaret has died. This was all a lie, but Gerald believed it, and decided to attempt suicide. But instead of killing himself and escaping death, he decides to become a friar. (Summary by Elijah Fisher)
    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/1366
    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.

I plan on reading very soon! I have looked up the pronunciation of a few difficult words in chapters 1 and 2 and I'm ready to go. I'm just finishing up on a few smaller projects first.

I've been waiting years for someone to read 'The Cloister and the Hearth', one of my favorite books. The archaic English and the Latin might be a bit tricky. Good luck and many thanks. I'll be your first customer when you're finished.

Best wishes
