Hello everyone and welcome to the second episode of the BBC radio drama starring Shaun Evans.
This is the first of I think five episodes. Enjoy.
Adapted from Leïla Slimani’s international bestseller, winner of France’s prestigious Prix Goncourt.
When Myriam, a French-Moroccan lawyer, decides to return to work, she and her music producer husband Paul look for the perfect nanny for their two young children. They never dreamed they would find Louise – a quiet, polite and devoted woman who captivates the children, cleans the family’s chic Paris apartment, stays late without complaint and hosts enviable birthday parties.
But as the couple’s dependence on their nanny increases, their idyllic domesticity is shattered.
By Leïla Slimani

I would like to say a huge thank you to those who have become Patrons of the site and also a huge thank you to those who have made donations. What do I mean by Patrons?
What is Patreon? Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid. It’s a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service, with ways for artists to build relationships with their subscribers, or “patrons”.
With Patreon you set up how much you wish to pay monthly. There are three tiers, $5, $10 and $15. It’s like paying for a magazine subscription.
Patreon primarily uses Paypal which is easy to join and a safe way to send money. https://www.paypal.com/uk/home

I have started my own Facebook page. It is primarily an extension of this website. I decided to start the Facebook page as there has been times when I have an update to a review post or some interesting news or information but it was all to small to make into a full blown post here on my website. So, come and join and keep up-to-date with all that happens in the Morse universe.
