Monica - Complete 3 volumes, by Evelyn Everett-Green (1856 - 1932)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/monica-by-evelyn-everett-green/

Monica was happy at Trevlyn, with her father and step-brother. But what would happen to them when the estate passed to a distant cousin, entailed as it was to the male line? Could she bear to see her invalid brother torn from his home? Should she marry this distant cousin, and thus ensure her and her brother the right to remain at Trevyln? Could she love him? And what about his dislike of her old childhood friend? Was there more to the situation than she knew? (Summary by Krista Zaleski)

OK, your MW is ready for you! Are you going to DPL your project as well? If not, then I will add a ~ to the subject line to let people know that we are looking for a DPL. Also, in my mind, the intros do not really need the "complete 3 volumes" part. I think it would be fine to just say "Monica" as the title without the "complete 3 volumes" part. All three links will be available on the catalog page, and you could let people know that the whole story spans three volumes in the summary. Let me know what you would like to do, and we can change it if you want to.

Thanks Ann. Let's look for a DPL. Failing that, I'll do it, but we'll give people a while to drop in first.

I agree with the intros. I'll fix the first post to change that, but I assume you'll have to update the database.

The link to volume 2 was wrong. I've fixed it in the first post, but do you need to check the database?

The Magic Window is ready now.

I have corrected the link for volume 2 on the project page, thank you for letting me know! Everything looks great! We will wait here a day or two to see if someone will pop up as DPL. It usually doesn't take too long.

I have a recommendation for you. You might want to think about using a Link to Text in the MW for each section. This way, you can hopefully prevent some readers getting "lost" in the different volumes. I have already put the link for chapter one in as an example. Here is the code.

Code: Select all

<a href="" target="blank">Link to text</a>
If you need some help, let me know. Once you know how to make these links, it is very easy to do.

Thank you. I tried to created links in the Notes column before and failed miserably. I'll try it again.
Once i do that, perhaps we can head over to Readers Wanted and hope for a DPL down the road.

Chapter 1. Edited while sick, so... uh... I hope it's lucid.

I love listening to your readings. No indication you were sick :) (I hope you are feeling better).

There are just 2 issues to correct here.
5:58 -I hear "the only child by a second marriage", text says "the only child by a first marriage"
7:39 - missing line "as all believed, to die. He did not die, however, but recovered to a suffering"
