I've just uploaded Crescent Carnival, by Francis Parkinson Keyes. It was very well scanned by a bookshare volunteer. The only errors were missing words in sentences which, of course, could not be found unless one was reading the book. There were practically no scannos, and all pages were there. This is a historical novel set in New Orleans and on a plantation in a Louisiana parish. Despite the somewhat old-fashioned style of writing and quaint vocabulary, the sensitive reader will become involved with the characters. Part II left me saddened and with a lump in my throat that lasted all the way through Part III. Francis Parkinson Keyes was a very popular writer in her time. The book is thoroughly researched and worth reading for the history and culture and social mores. The story and relationships of individuals in the two families is interesting and well-told, but I found the dialogue, especially in the middle section, awkward--but maybe that's the way people and children spoke in that time and place.
