The Girl on the Boat

Forgot to mention that I finished recording another free audiobook. Thanks to Elli for prooflistening and cataloging! :)

The Girl on the Boat, by P.G Wodehouse

Also published as “Three Men and a Maid”. The maid of the title is red-haired, dog-loving Wilhelmina “Billie” Bennet, and the three men are Bream Mortimer, a long-time friend and admirer of Billie, Eustace Hignett, a lily-livered poet who is engaged to Billie at the opening of the tale, and Sam Marlowe, Eustace’s dashing cousin, who falls for Billie at first sight. All four find themselves on an ocean liner headed for England together, along with a capable young woman called Jane Hubbard who is smitten with Eustace, and typically Wodehousian romantic shenanigans ensue.

Hope you like it!

    I just finished The Secret Garden that you recorded a few years back and I wanted to send along my congratulations for a job so well done. You have a very easy voice to listen to, and did a great job on the accent — not to mention the singing! Thank you for such an enjoyable experience.

    Listened to your Librivox recording of The Girl On The Boat during a recent road trip to Pittsburgh from MD (and on the way back). I enjoyed it very much! Thanks for your efforts.

    Great job, Kara Shallenberg! That was the most charming and delightful P.G. Wodehouse reading I’ve ever heard. I sure hope you read more complete books. (I posted this same comment on archive.org
