Join us in celebrating the release
Sunday 25th June, 3-5pm
The Burning Bracken is a thought-provoking work of eco-fiction which questions our relationship with the rural landscape, how we are to live with it, and what it means to us.
Sarah is starting again, alone. Hafod Farm gives her the chance for a new life, away from the pain of the past. Taken in by hardworking hill farmer Evan and his wife, Sioned, she begins to see a new future for herself. But beneath the beauty of the Welsh countryside, all is not as peaceful as it seems.The landscape is changing. New ideas are challenging the old farms. Conservationists lead a growing movement to rewild the land. Newcomers are settling in the empty houses, seeking a spiritual connection with nature. When catastrophe befalls the landscape, tensions explode, and the situation grows increasingly desperate, sinister and violent.
