If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Pam,

Section 01 is PL OK. Once more, you've chosen well. I can't think of other writers who have the sympathy of a bishop and the instinct of an historian and can see religion and politics combined so clearly.

I don't know if it was one page of this scan or my prescription, but I read Spain as Spam. I suspect it's me being due for an eye test!

Thanks, Erin!

He has an excellent reputation as a historian.

I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, too!

Hi Pam,

Section 2 is PL OK. I know it's early, but I'm liking this.
