Solace

A nourishing podcast. I have enjoyed listening wherever I wander, especially at evenings in new and unfamiliar places. The stories are clearly original and inspired by literary imagination. I think MacDonald and Lewis and Tolkien would also enjoy these yarns, spun outside of the commercial sector. I feel that we are in good hands with Mr. Jacklin and his stories.

My sincere thanks, Mr Jacklin. I have so enjoyed your stories especially at night when my mind seems to spin out, hashing out the day. So impressed with your talent, your deep, soothing voice and your writing. I’m always touched and comforted at times.
