Helen with the High Hand, by Arnold Bennett (1867 - 1931)

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/helen-with-the-high-hand-by-arnold-bennett/
James Ollerenshaw is a middle-aged, wealthy bachelor who lives in Bursley, one of the Five Towns. A chance encounter with Helen, his great step niece, a determined young lady in her twenties, turns his whole world – and hers - upside down.
The book humorously follows the fortunes of them both as we learn more about the pair.
(Summary by Simon Evers)

Target completion date: 2022-12-31

Prooflistening level: Standard
Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. 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!
