The Mother's Recompense by Edith Wharton (1862 - 1937).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-mothers-recompense-by-edith-wharton/
Kate Cephane, now living in self-imposed exile in France, left her three-year-old daughter Anne behind when she fled her impossibly unhappy marriage for a brief affair. But when Anne asks her to return because she is getting engaged, Kate risks the scorn and scandal of New York elite society to be reconciled. Then she finds out the identity of her daughter's fiancé and is caught in the dilemma of how to prevent the marriage without revealing her past. Either way she will risk losing her daughter once more.
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/mothersrecompens00whar
  • 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!

MW coming up.

edit: Let me know if any changes are needed. Whether you mention the Book # is up to you. At most I would mention them only in the intros/outros of the sections where they begin/end. If they haven't already appeared, I'll remind you of the book summary/genres/keywords when the book is near completion. Should we advertise for a DPL?

On the page where you fill in the MW with titles, etc., there is a button in the upper right corner (Project Screen). Just click on it and a new page opens. The information is entered there. If you have any difficulties I can enter the information.

Just post the book summary, some keywords and suggested genres in this thread before cataloging and I'll add them to the Project Screen. I'm assuming you can edit the MW. If you are having a problem there we go to "Plan B."
