The History of Emily Montague, Vol. III by Frances Moore Brooke (1724 - 1789).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

https://librivox.org/the-history-of-emily-montague-vol-iii-by-frances-moore-brooke/



The History of Emily Montague, volume 4 has been launched here: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=78562

neecheelok70 (Jim) will PL final sections. Standard PL is fine. No need to follow with the script as this is a series of letters rather than a traditional DR.
The novel takes place 10 years after the Battle of the Plains of Abraham in 1759 when Quebec becomes a British colony. Written as a collection of letters, the story follows the relationships between Edward Rivers (a British soldier), his friend, John Temple (rather a cad), Emily Montague (a young British woman), and her dearest friend, Arabella Fermor (a flirtatious drama queen). Giving glimpses into the new frontier discoveries of Canada, one not only peeks into the personal relationships of these characters but gets swept away by the enticing descriptions of the "new world." This is Volume 3 of 4. ( Amanda Friday)
    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text :http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/16300
      Please read from the highlighted text here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1quGX8BA7JP5Hg5jZ13qMDyHMUeFxhtir?usp=sharing
    5. Please claim roles! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.
