    Dear Paul
    I am a genealogist and while researching my own family I found a link with the Ravenshaw family. This led me to make contact with June Prowse who is the great niece of Gladys Nina Werner. She knew nothing of Gladys and her remarkable story and would like very much to email you. Would this be possible? Her email address is juneprowse77@gmail.com
    We have both read and were intrigued by Midnight in Peking.
    Kind regards
