080 – Lena Rivers: A Sad Story To Send You To Sleep

Tonight’s bedtime story is a tale of tragedy and betrayal. But also love and strong will.

A young country woman falls for a rascal of a man and is alone to return pregnant to her family. Her brother is embarrassed by his rural family. But when tragedy after tragedy strikes he needs to take his mother and his niece to his bitter, ‘superior’ wife and set up a very tense home life.

But none of that matter because you won’t get to the end of the story tonight. You’ll be fast asleep.
