Biography & Local History


Set in the aftermath of the First World War, Broth Again For Dinner introduces us to a young girl, Florence, from Whitland, Carmarthenshire, whose resilience and humour carried her through a life of hardship and one where comfort was scarce.


Florence's words, which vividly describe her life up to the age of 16, have now tumbled into life, leaving the reader moved and warmed by the picture which she has so vividly painted.


A significant contribution to the social narrative of rural South Wales in the 1920s and 1930s, Broth Again For Dinner offers us a poignant insight into the life of a girl on the brink of womanhood and the changes that lie ahead.


The cover for Broth Again For Dinner features a family photograph showing Florence (the youngest, on the right) together with her brother and sisters.
