We follow the author in transitions - post-(amicable)divorce, adjusting teenage daughter, downsizing her house, and embarking on what it takes to keep 6 chickens through all this over the course of a year that includes a cold, snowy Boston winter.
There's not a lot below the surface.....
I thought this book was a well-done little memoir, a good sharing-of-stories that you'd enjoy if you spent a weekend together. I liked the sense of humor, the amusing insights into chicken personality and human personality, the sharing of kindness among neighbors, and the strong sense of place as well as the exploration of the emotions one experiences when leaving one home/life for another.
