Gwen 💓

Started listening chills ran up my spine. I remember hearing this story before. Gwen Des sister was a friend of my parents. She opened up once about her long lost brother. So sad she never knew the truth.

Heartfelt

Even though this made me sad for the loss your family has suffered, i just want to hug you all. I hope your Mum and her sister and the rest of the family found the answers to free your Uncle.
I was unable to go past episode 16 though

A great one!

Very well done!
One of my favourites!
Keep up the amazing work!
