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.
I am delighted with the two books I've received, Whitby and Yorkshire and will get much pleasure from them. As children my brothers and I spent many happy hours on the Sands as they were called by that name in the 1930s - not the Beach as it is named today!
Came across your book quite by accident. What a wonderful trip down memory lane and also the added bonus of a free print which means my father's Xmas present is sorted! As he is Repton born and bred so a BIG Thank You!
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As a hopeful as yet unpublished writer, it was fantastic to see my name in print!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 must apologize for the lateness of response but have only just finished reading said book which I found most informative. The quality of the photographs seems better than previous and the layout of the pages led seamlessly from one to another. All in all a thoroughly good read which leads me to quote some previous author who said, “the book to read is not the one that thinks for you but the one that makes you think.” Your books certainly make you think.
Our books are printed specially for you, packed & despatched from our workshops in Wiltshire.
