An excellent story

Knowing the circumstances behind the writing of this story, I couldn’t resist. This is most definitely worth listening to and Jane Kennedy gave a good performance. Her voice went with this story well. Really liked the way the story didn’t rush to explain the situation in a page or two, rolling with a steady pace I enjoyed.
