THE STORY OF THE YARA
Tonight’s episode is originally a Brazilian tale that I believe was later collected by Andrew Lang called The Story of the Yara. This enticing romantic tale is of a young lover called Alonzo who struggles to heed to the warnings of his dear love Julia who begs him to stay away from the forest where she believes he's encountered the Yara, The Yara is a Brazilian water spirit who lures young men with her singing. Does love conquer all? You'll have to listen to the whole story to find out :) Please note that there are a couple of modified sentences at the end of the story to help tie up loose ends :) I hope you enjoy this tale! Sweet dreamzzz...
