Wonderful Stories Read Wonderfully Gving a Fantastic Insight

I cannot wait for season 2!

These stories are captivating, being written and performed spectacularily.

These are intriguing and wonderful little windows into the lives of people history has forgotten.

The interviews with the authors are a delightful addition.

I seriously cannot get enough and cannot recommened it more strongly!
