The remarkable story of Heffers of Cambridge.
A fully illustrated social history of a great Cambridge institution, capturing the spirit of a past era of retail, publishing, and printing.
“You’ve achieved a wonderful balance between a thorough factual account and a very human, often heart-warming and amusing account, and I think you’ve absolutely nailed the character of the Heffers firm and how it was/is made-up of so many characters.”
Pippa Goodhart, Author, November 2016

‘Readers of this impressive and enjoyable book will surely long remember the vivid scenes in which one family’s commitment enabled its members to play a part in events that helped to shape our world.’ Professor Anthony Bradley
“This is an amazing story about the author’s parents, grand-parents and great grand-parents. They were a family of doctors and worked bravely and tirelessly as Christian Missionaries in hospitals in central China from the 1880s to about 1950. This book is a testament to their steadfast faith in the face of constant adversity with wars, revolutions, major flooding and persecution of missionaries just some of the challenges they face in decades of work… The book is very well written with a lot of photos and images within the text.” from a five star review on Goodreads
