Droitwich Spa The Postcard Collection

Droitwich Spa The Postcard Collection

Author: Paul Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 15/11/2017

Salt has been a valuable commodity for thousands of years, and it is because of this that Droitwich - under which lies vast quantities of salt - has prospered, particularly since Roman times. Droitwich saw great changes in the nineteenth century, largely brought about by `Salt King' John Corbett. During this period the town evolved from an industrial town to a spa town with two brine bath complexes and numerous hotels and guest houses. By the 1920s the salt industry had left Droitwich, leaving the town firmly established as a spa town; but this industry is now being resurrected, thanks to the new Churchfields Saltworks at Salwarpe, and Wychbold Fudge's salted fudge. Droitwich Spa: The Postcard Collection charts the town's proud and distinctive history through a fascinating selection of old postcards, photographs and prints, showing what life was like for the past residents of Droitwich and its rural district. Written by local historian Paul Jones LRPS, this book will inform and delight long-time residents and those new to the area.

Touching the Rainbow

Author: Paul Jones Format: eBook Release Date: 12/05/2017

Touching the Rainbow tells the story of a young man, Pete, a victim of a dysfunctional childhood who is riddled with insecurity and self-doubt. He is not married, but has been engaged to his long-suffering girlfriend for 11 years. Suddenly, fate delivers a severe blow and he is killed in a car crash.To his horror, he becomes a trapped soul. His salvation arrives in the form of a celestial helper who tells him that it is all the emotional problems he suffered on earth that are keeping him from moving on. To free his soul, he must accomplish a mission that will force him to face up to all the fears and regrets he tried to shy away from when he was alive. However, in doing this, he also discovers some shocking revelations about his past, and a startling twist to the meaning of his former life... Touching the Rainbow has been inspired by the works of James Herbert; the simplistic yet realistic style of Herbert's TheRats led Paul to emulate the same style. The book will appeal to fans of paranormal romance fiction, as well as readers with a deep sentimental core and a natural curiosity about the mysteries of life.

Our April A mother and father's heart-breaking story of the daughter they loved and lost

Our April A mother and father's heart-breaking story of the daughter they loved and lost

Author: Paul Jones, Coral Jones Format: Paperback Release Date: 24/03/2016

This is the heartbreaking story of the abduction and murder of five-year-old April Jones, which sparked the biggest police search in UK history. The nation was shocked by her disappearance from the tiny Welsh village of Machynllech in October 2012. Her body was never fully recovered but paedophile Mark Bridger was convicted of her murder and abduction following a month-long trial in May 2013. In this gripping and harrowing book, April's heartbroken parents Coral and Paul speak at length about their beloved daughter and the search for her, their ordeal as they faced Bridger in court every day during the trial, and their ongoing fight against the vile child pornography he viewed in the days leading up to April's abduction. They remember with enduring love the daughter who fought so bravely to survive premature birth and mild disability, and who was enchanted by all the things a little girl finds magical. Paul Jones kept a diary throughout the ordeal, the contents of which are revealed for the first time in this searingly honest account of unimaginable emotional pain. Alongside books such as Madeleineby Kate McCann and Goodbye Dearest Hollyby Kevin Wells, Aprilwill stand as a poignant reminder of what it means to lose the thing you most love.

Unwelcome Voices Subversive Fiction in the Antebellum South

Unwelcome Voices Subversive Fiction in the Antebellum South

Author: Paul Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/10/2005

The literature of the antebellum South has often been described in literary histories as little more than glorified propaganda for the aristocratic, slave-owning class. While this might pertain to the region's historical romances that feature a dashing, resolute hero committed to upholding the dearly held institutions of slave-holding society and that relegate women and African Americans to roles as meek supporters or loyal comic sideshows, this view does not describe all of the South's literature from this period.In Unwelcome Voices: Subversive Fiction in the Antebellum South, Paul C. Jones argues that there was a subversive group of voices that dared challenge cherished southern traditions and raised questions about the issues facing the South in the years leading up to the Civil War, including slavery, democracy, and women's rights.Jones examines the work of five southern writers from that era: James Heath, Frederick Douglass, Edgar Allan Poe, John Pendleton Kennedy, and E.D.E.N. Southworth. Each author was subversive in different ways: Heath featured a progressive hero who ignored the aristocratic assumptions of the South; Douglass presented a rebellious slave hero and made the slave-owning class his villains; Poe used horror to highlight the South's hidden anxieties; Kennedy challenged the romantic visions of the South by opposing them with realistic depictions of the region; and Southworth employed abolitionist rhetoric to undermine traditionalist discourse. Jones clearly shows that the fiction of these writers diverged sharply from the South's dominant literary formula.Unwelcome Voices represents a major turning point in the study of the literature of the antebellum South. It recognizes those authors who produced the counterweight to the writing meant to prop up the region's elite class and slaveholding way of life. Unwelcome Voices will be a welcome and needed addition to the libraries of anyone interested in Southern history or the literature of the antebellum period.
