    065 – The Orchid – A Bedtime Story

    You won’t catch this young woman napping

    The story of a fox hunt is a strange one to help you sleep, but aside from an uncertain proposal there’s not much to excite you here. A wilful young woman agrees to marry a wealthy, if staid, young man from the hunting club. But you’ll be counting sheep before the big announcement. And if you’re not, that’s perfectly fine. 😊
