Frome Standard review of Working Memories
"...insights into Frome's very different and industrial past, the stories capture glimpses of housing conditions, shops, employment, markets and schools.
It illustrates local life in the decades since the 1930s, including wartime reminiscences, and shows the thriving social life which was based on the town's large employers."
