One day, two women who lived on either side of the Atlantic were enjoying a normal day at their respective homes. But all of a sudden, one of them received a letter that would change both of their lives forever. Ann Hunt lives in the UK, while Elizabeth Hamel lives in the US. But somehow, someway, there is a unique secret going back nearly 80 years, that connects these two individuals.
Ann’s story started in Aldershot, United Kingdom. She had a happy upbringing and loved her parents dearly. But as she blossomed into an independent young lady, she started to feel suspicious about the life she lived. Something didn’t feel right, and she had the feeling that she was missing something in her life. Eventually, she fell in love with her high school sweetheart, Jim. And the couple had many kids and grandkids that gave them much pride and joy. However, Ann eventually lost Jim…
Elizabeth’s story is similar in ways, yet different in others. Born out of wedlock, her mother was under pressure to give her up for adoption. However, because Elizabeth had a curved spine, she was deemed at the time to not be fit for adoption. So her mother kept her, but had another woman take care of her while she worked at a mansion nearby. Eventually, enough was enough, she took Liz and the pair started a new life in London together. Liz met the love of her life, also called Jim, and moved to America. Just like Ann, she had many kids and grandkids.
But you might be asking yourself, what is the connection between these two women? They came from different families and lived fairly different lives. What exactly is it that has brought these two together at such a late stage of their lives? Follow as we unravel the incredible story of two women who have a lot more in common than they could have ever imagined.
