“I found “One Winter” warm and authentic and an enjoyable read.” Stan Barstow (Author of the novel “A Kind of Loving”)

“Geoff's novels are full of interesting story lines and characters with many of them probably based on people he once worked with or knew. They have brought back many memories for me, helped by both of us growing up at the same time, in the same town, attending the same school and supporting the same team.” Ray French (Former Rugby League and Rugby Union international and BBC Rugby League commentator)

“Geoff has the ability to tell tales about ordinary everyday life and turn them into drama. I have enjoyed all his novels so far and am looking forward to his next with anticipation.” Phil Howard (author of the novel “Braver Than All The Rest”)

“Time keeps moving on and the Greenall household keeps moving with them. As always Geoff captures the changing issues and moods of northern life and rugby league so well.” Graham Williams (Rugby League historian and a fellow former draughtsman)

“Geoff's Ashurst series began as a small slice of local life in the early Sixties. With his latest novel he continues to entertain and amuse his readers with his tales of northern life, some forty years later.” Dave Hadfield (Leading Rugby League journalist)

“Geoff Lee's novels are an authentic slice of working class life in the North of England. They capture the ups and downs and the highs and lows of work, family, sport and love.” Professor Tony Collins (Historian of both Rugby League and Rugby Union)
