Chickens in the Road: An Adventure in Ordinary Splendorby Suzanne Mcminn
Synopses & Reviews
Suzanne McMinn, a former romance writer and founder of the popular blog chickensintheroad.com, shares the story of her search to lead a life of ordinary splendor in Chickens in the Road, her inspiring and funny memoir.
Craving a life that would connect her to the earth and her family roots, McMinn packed up her three kids, left her husband and her sterile suburban existence behind, and moved to rural West Virginia. Amid the rough landscape and beauty of this rural mountain country, she pursues a natural lifestyle filled with chickens, goats, sheep—and no pizza delivery.
With her new life comes an unexpected new love—"52," a man as beguiling and enigmatic as his nickname—a turbulent romance that reminds her that peace and fulfillment can be found in the wake of heartbreak. Coping with formidable challenges, including raising a trio of teenagers, milking stubborn cows, being snowed in with no heat, and making her own butter, McMinn realizes that shes living a forty-somethings coming-of-age story.
As she dares to become self-reliant and embrace her independence, she reminds us that life is a bold adventure—if were willing to live it.
Chickens in the Road includes more than 20 recipes, craft projects, and McMinns photography, and features a special two-color design.
Includes recipes and homemade craft projects
Based on her long-running, wildly popular blog, Chickens in the Road, Suzanne McMinn brings country life to vivid color with all the candor, comedy, and danger of a rollicking good adventure. Put on your chore boots and jump in.
