If you’re looking for a great documentary on Netflix, give ‘A Secret Love’ a try. The loving story line depicts an irresistible couple of more than 60 years and their journey in life. It’s 1 hour and 22 minutes long and received a rating of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. (Interesting fact-Terry Donahue was a player in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League between 1946-1949 on the Peoria Redwings Team. In 1992 there was a little well-known movie called ‘A League of Their Own’ portraying these forward-thinking women baseball players) Check both of them out!
