Review:

"Hidden History of the Piedmont Triad recounts a number of interesting stories from throughout the Triad--from historic people and places to lesser-known colorful slices of life." --Jimmy Tomlin, High Point Enterprise

"In Hidden History of the Piedmont Triad, Sink writes about Lexington's downtown dime stores. She describes how each counter was life a different department of the store, with a candy counter and comic book section popular with children...and makeup counters that carried old-fashioned items such as Tangee lipstick and Evening in Paris perfume." --Vikki Broughton Hodges, the Dispatch

"[Hidden History of the Piedmont Triad]...covers people, places and events that have been forgotten." --Ryan Gay, lifestyles editor, Kernersville News
