Listener: Ingrid Birchell-Hughes

"in my darkest time I was not expecting to be thrown a lifeline from my family, from 140years ago"

Samantha Baines joins listener Ingrid to talk about her unique divorce experience. Ingrid discovered love letters that had been passed down in her family from 140years ago between Fred and Janie her ancestors. During her own divorce Ingrid began following the story of her great great grandad and grandma, researching and started her own podcast to share this one hundred year old love story with the world. Her research brought up parallels and highlighted the historical differences women face in relationships then and now as well as revealing another family member going through a divorce at the time.

Ingrid's podcast is called My Love Letter Time Machine
