Andrew the Glad by Maria Thompson Daviess (1872 - 1924).

"There are some women who will brew mystery from the decoction of even a very simple life. Matilda is one of them, remarked the major to himself as he filled his pipe and settled himself before his high-piled, violet-flamed logs..."

A sweet, heartfelt, old-fashioned romance. The middle-aged adults take a kindly interest in the affairs of the young people, with many having friendships across generations in a way not often seen today. Experience life with Phoebe, David, Caroline, Andrew, and the Buchanans in a small town in the Harpeth Valley, Tennessee in the early 1900s.

This book reflects many of the feelings and attitudes prevalent at the time of its original publication. It may contain references that reflect mores and opinions that directly conflict with today’s prevailing sentiments. (LikeManyWaters)

Would love to be Mistake. Can also claim some other small roles - I see his mother does not appear in the same chapters as him.

Wonderful. I'll put you all in as soon as I get a MW.

This is set up.

I took the tilde out from the start of the thread title since you said you're going to PL parts. Otherwise I think it's confusing. I think it would be good to advertise for a PL for the final chapters later on, when there are some to listen to - or like I put in the thread title, note that it's the final DPL needed. It's more specific. ;)

I heard that Andy wasn't home until after midnight last night. And he was ... well, he may have been just tired ,,, but he was most certainly swaying ... and humming.

I'm not sure the proper way to pronounce the last name "Sevier". French? English? Doing a little research.... If any of you happen to know, shout it out. This is early 1900s rural Tennessee.

BINGO...

"Sevier County TNGenWeb

Answers to Frequently-Asked Questions
about Sevier County Research
Question: How do you pronounce "Sevier"?
Answer: Just as you would "severe." The county takes its name from General John Sevier, first Governor of the State of Tennessee. The surname Sevier was originally the French name "Xavier." John Sevier never lived in the county."

So let's go with "severe"

Looks like you're all set. I'll move it to Readers Wanted.

There doesn't appear to be a section 0, so I've made the sections to number starting at 1. If this needs changing, I can do so. The section numbers don't matter as much on a DW since no files (except the final ones) need them.
