Lost for Love by Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1835 - 1915).


EXCERPT: In all things that he did, Flora's well-being was the doctor's paramount consideration. He brought pleasant people to his house; men of professional standing, and their wives. He sought to win friends for her, and the gentle charm of her manner endeared her to the people he brought about her, almost in spite of herself. To know her was to love her.
To Cuthbert Ollivant's small circle of intimates Flora was known only as his ward. ( )

    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!

Your MW is ready, Helen is in as DPL, and it is fine with me if you change the summary before you finish the project. Let me know when you do, and I will copy/paste it on project page behind the scenes. As soon as I know everyone has seen what I have done, we can move over to Going Solo!

Love the snow angel. Yes I certainly got out in time. They had another snowfall in Ottawa overnight...supposed to be 6 inches when done this time.

And thanks for Not rushing me. :D :D

Section 4 is very long because I decided not to split the chapter (it`s the longest). If you or Ann want me to split it please just say so...not a big deal to do of course.

Have a super weekend! Back in a few days.

Trying to send you sunshine and warmth!!!!!
