Fairy Tale Friday- Anne Lisbeth

This week’s fairy tale is all about a girl named Anne Lisbeth. This girl has a child that she doesn’t want. She pays someone who digs ditches to care for the child. Such a lovely lady! (Not!) Anne Lisbeth somehow manages to get a job looking after the Count’s baby. Anne Lisbeth marries a rich man. Meanwhile Anne’s son is all grown up. He goes out to sea and unfortunately dies. I don’t know if Anne has a guilty conscience or something, but she hallucinates about his ghost wanting to be buried. Anne goes completely mad, but eventually finds redemption. She believes when she goes to dies, she’ll go to heaven. Or perhaps it was wishful thinking!
