Not So Merry Wakefield

Front Cover
Casemate Publishers, Jan 1, 2005 - Great Britain - 176 pages
Talks about the life and times of a Wakefield woman in the late twentieth century with substantial local historical information. This book aims to echo Henry Clarkson's memories of Merry Wakefield (1887), but with more sombre overtones reflecting experiences of single parenthood, and the trauma of a fatal car accident, but with good times too.
