You Did What?!
by John Flint
Growing up in 40s Britain was a lot different than it is today. A memory-laden read for those familiar with the period, an eye-opener for those who have grown up with safety shoes, goggles and warning signs, and can't believe anyone could survive without them.
Table for One, Sir?
by John Flint
In this deeply poignant and personal memoir, John Flint recounts the experience of his wife, Patricia’s diagnosis with cancer, her death, and his efforts to readjust to life afterwards.
In a book that is touching, warm, and wise, John looks at some of the realities of each stage; and, in doing so, he provides an insight into the real emotions and experiences of a carer and widower.
