    I loved this story!! I was driving to an appointment while listening and didn’t want to get out of my car so I could continue the story, lol.

    Great pick. I love the idea of keeping stories alive.

    This story had such a good mix of action, emotion and surprise!

    Loving the new direction and can’t wait to keep listening 🙂

    Hope you and your family are well!
