Three Good Years
The novel is set in Ashurst in south Lancashire between 2006 and 2008 and has a background of work, family life and rugby league and covers campaigns against the privatisation of the NHS. It is the latest of Geoff Lee's novels based in Ashurst. The main character, Alan Greenall, works in the Drawing Office of the Wilkinson's Engineering company where less than 300 people are now employed. This is quite different from the 1960s when that number was well over 8,000. He still spends time visiting power stations in England and Wales as well as two cotton mills in Portugal and a chemical plant in Eastern France. He and his wife Thelma now have three grandchildren Josh, Joanna and Daisy. They still like to watch St Helens every week, always enjoying their trips into Yorkshire and particularly to Headingly and Odsal. Thelma's family background is researched by their son's partner Megan. With the aid of her friend in Cardiff, they discover that her mother grew up in Tiger Bay and may have been at school around the same time as Shirley Bassey, Billy Boston and Johnny Freeman.
