    The Adventures of Florian

    The Adventures of Florian

    Hello friends!

    Tonight's story is called The Adventures of Florian by Henry Beston.  A lovely tale of a young girl who disguises herself as a boy to be able to get work and gets hired as a squire due to her bravery and dedication. He (she) does everything in her power to protect her Prince whom she falls in love with secretly and eventually sacrifices her own safety to rescue him from imprisonment by an evil witch.  Will the Prince find out that Florian is actually Isabella? Will he fall in love with her too? Let's find out together!

    This episode includes soft background music to help enhance your relaxation and the music continues for a bit after the story ends. If you prefer a more quiet listening experience you can listen to a no music version by following this link: https://youtu.be/OMdNDXldzWQ

    And so, lights out, lie back and let's get sleepy together!
    Sweet dreamzzz...

Exceptional!

I am often desperate to get to sleep … or get back to sleep. I’ve turned to many different sleep story podcasts, but Joanne is the one I return to over and over again. Her soothing voice lulls me to sleep night after night. I often fall asleep before the end of the story, so return to the same story over and over again while wait for her to post the next installment. I very much like that she reads stories I’ve never heard before, too!

Very relaxing, and amazing stories.

Hi my name is Aniyah, I started listening tonight🎧🌃. I think this is an amazing podcast that I will continue to listen to🎙📱🤩 ——————————————————— I started on the Adventure of Florian, and it was an amazing story📖🤩 in my opinion, cause I’m more into fantasy tales🦄🧞‍♂️🧜🏾‍♀️🧚🏾🧙🏾‍♂️.
I’m currently listening to Dandelion & Tilly’s Christmas, I’m on Tilly’s Christmas, but I think Dandelion was a beautiful heart-warming story ♥️🔥🪵.
———————————————————
I’m very excited to keep listening to this podcast😆🎙📱 and I hope your dad gets better🙏🏾🥰 (have hope and faith!) .
