Harry Dee; or Making it Out, by Francis J. Finn (1859 - 1928)
Young Harry Dee arrives at St. Maure's thin and pale from his painful experiences involving the murder of his rich uncle. In this last book of the three of Fr. Finn's famous trio, Tom and Percy help Harry recover from his early trauma which involves solving "the Mystery of Tower Hill Mansion."

After many wild experiences, the three boys graduate from St. Maure's and head toward the life work to which God is calling each of them as young men. (Temporary borrowed summary)

Glad to have you help! I've thought about doing them as group projects for awhile, but didn't know if they would attract readers. Happy to find that they have! :-)

Hello Maria
I'm recording chapter 2 and my voices are maybe getting a bit out of hand... should I be trying different voices or just keeping it uniform, especially since it's a group read?

Hi Marc,

You can do it which ever way you would like! We are bound to get many different ways of reading things in a group project. :-)

Here's chapter 2, I toned down Uncle James' voice a bit but please let me know if it's over the top. I'd rather get quality over quantity now so I have things more or less right from the start. :)
