This book is a charming and quirky memoir. The author writes in a comical & at times sarcastic way & you'll find yourself chuckling along with her. I found myself looking forward to being able to sit down and read more of this tale!

As a backyard chicken mom myself- I understood just how Catherine' chickens gave her strength and brought her & her daughter through a very tramatic and stressful time.

Overall, this book is a fast, fun and touching read. There were only a few things I didn't like in this book. The comments where she was using Jesus' name in vain & when her daughter was bragging about how she was "agnostic" in front of a preacher, when there was no call for this. I really didn't see how these comments added to this otherwise lovely book.
