    PDF Marie-Elsa Bragg ð ð Towards Mellbreak Kindle ✓ towards mobile, mellbreak pdf, Towards Mellbreak PDF/EPUBMarie Elsa Bragg's first novel is a tough and painful portrait of a Lake District farming family over twenty odd years from the early seventies through to the mid nineties Their world is not that of tourist Lakeland but one of tradition sheer physical hard work the church and grim dealings with ever increasing interference from government It's a tragic tale and the fact that the tragedy is an outcome of bureaucratic meddling with a traditional way of life makes it all the shocking but beautifully told and it's obvious that Bragg has a real understanding of the fells and the people who work them
