What you say about our Books
We are always grateful and proud to hear back from you. Here's what you have been saying about our Books.
To all at Francis Frith.I have just recieved my copy of 'I Remember When' which includes my entry about the Witch from my family's past (page 197, bottom right hand side).
As a hopeful as yet unpublished writer, it was fantastic to see my name in print! To know that other readers will see my own name has given me an enormous kick.
Also, the book itself is prooving to be a good read that I can pick up and put down at any time and I'll always find facinating stories, some of which have already brought back memories of my own.
My Dad is in hospital at the moment, so I'll be taking the book with me on my next visit to show him. He will be impressed with it too!
Thanks once again, all at Francis Frith for choosing to include my memory. I'll be using your site again to order very soon, and I'll sing your prais es to everyone I work with (whether they are interested or not)!
Ann Martin (one very satisfied customer)
I have finally received my eagerly awaited copy of the book "I Remember When...". I was curious as to which story your company had published in the book. I was overwhelmed and astonished to see that you have published four of my stories, one of which is on Page 69. This entailed the story of the Majestic Cinema in Mitcham and my subsequent dream of going to the South Pacific. The pictures attached are in fact one of the islands I lived on for 14 years with my husband and two daughters - the youngest was born there and the eldest was 16 months when we arrived. We were there when Papua New Guinea became an Independent Nation and I have many experiences and memories of the island of New Britain - of course I have written these down - but are only for private publication. We left when my husband was murdered, but that is another story.
I continue to live in the Pacific and at the moment I am in Far North Queensland, Australia.
I will continue to write on your site on the different places I visited during my young years. I enjoy reading the book, it is very well presented, and learning of more experiences of the other writers in the book.
Thank you again for publishing my stories and I look forward to seeing another book published next year, whether it has any of my stories in it or not.
I would be grateful if you can forward my thanks to John M Buck.
Can I just say, WOW, I am lost for words. I received the book I got for my Mum's Christmas today and was so impressed with it. Brilliant. Thank you, I'm so glad I found you on line after hours of searching what to get her. So, so happy with it. Thanks a million!
This book is a Christmas present from my grandchildren and has given me so much pleasure to read during my recent illness. Many of my relatives are still scattered around Devon…. Barnstaple is a particular favourite of mine, so again many sincere thanks for the pleasure and memories it has given me.
