NEW BOOKS BY FWC AUTHORS

Two Frome authors bring the past to life.

The Gorge: Annette Burkitt’s second book is set in Somerset and Dorset in the tenth century, when King Athelstan has been succeeded by Edmund, his half-brother. The new nation of England faces huge challenges: threats from Northumbria and Ireland, resentment from Mercia, and pressure from the Church. The Gorge aims to convey the drama and events of the times in a very accessible way.

A-Z of Frome: Local authors Mick Davis and David Lassman take a journey through Frome to discover some significant and little-known aspects of its rich and varied past. Here are stories of UFO sightings, a world-famous Roman coin hoard, local inns, the search for underground tunnels and much, much more.
