The Brontë’s in the Spen Valley – Mabel Ferrett
Mabel Ferrett Brontes in Spen Valley 029

The Brontes in the Spen Valley – Mabel Ferret

Originally published as Shirley Country in 1973 revised in 1997 102 pages Illustrated by Stanley Chapman with an index. My irrational antipathy to the cult of the Brontes has prevented me from reading this, but having read other works by Mabel I have no doubts about readability. This copy would be fine but for the annotations (just highlighting paragraphs really) by a previous owner, because of that I am offering it at a reduced price.
