Janet Waithaka – The Long Return

The Long Return draws parallels between the experiences of people during the Exile (701-445BC) and the experiences of people around the world in more recent times. It is the story of a people's quest for meaning in life and their understanding of the big issues; life, death, war, peace, loss, renewal and spirituality. Ultimately it is the journey of returning to a positive relationship with others, with the created world and with the Creator. £7.99

John Whittaker – Hills and Mills – A Story of a Lancashire Family

The district of Rossendale in East Lancashire has been the subject of remarkable historical, economic and geographical accounts. By contrast, this is a story of how an inhospitable, even wild location and its people gradually forged a community in one small Pennine village which provided, for more than 100 years, work and employment, spiritual support and home-grown entertainment.  It is a chronicle of one clan, two cotton mills, an enterprising workforce and a non-conformist tradition of chapel-going and music making. Thoroughly researched and illustrated throughout, with many rare archive photographs, Hills and Mills, provides a fascinating insight into a bygone industrial and social world and serves as a permanent historical record. A ‘must read’ for all those interested in local heritage. £5.00
