The Daredevil by Maria Thompson Daviess (1872 - 1924).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-daredevil-by-maria-thompson-daviess/
Roberta, daughter of an American soldier and a French marquise, is returning to the childhood home of her father after his death in the Great War. Upon reaching New York she realizes that her Uncle, a woman-hater, has confused the genders of her and her small crippled brother. In order to please her Uncle and ensure medical treatment for Pierre, she becomes "Robert", his nephew. In her new identity she secures supplies for France, has many hilarious close-calls, and manages to fall in love with the Governor. (LikeManyWaters)

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record 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!

Chapter 4 ready for PL.

My volume settings were being a pain, but I think I have it fixed.
If it is too quiet or muffled sounding let me know. :roll: I'm not the only one to use this computer.
