Gatsby Client-Side External Redirect

We had a case where we needed to set up a redirect on the client side of Gatsby but we didn't want to spin up a lambda to handle this one case. A redirect like this wouldn't be a problem with some of the hosts out there, but we're just using s3 and Cloudfront for this site.

To set up a quick redirect on the client we can send a redirect link through page context and handle the window location in a useEffect.
