Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hens Dancing is an irresistible novel in which wry, thirty-something Venetia Summers chronicles her chaotic life through the course of a year.<P>It isn't easy to keep things running smoothly in a ramshackle farmhouse in the English countryside. There are the children who need comforting, new clothes, and rides to school. To say nothing of the tribulations caused by an exhusband who operates a pet mortuary, and a mother who hides Bloody Mary miniatures and cigarettes in the grass at Easter. But there are those moments that make it all worthwhile: an unexpected crow of joy from the youngest, a little flirtation with the plumber. With intelligence and wit, Barker gives us an intimate look into the lives of very real, deeply funny characters.

Synopsis:

Hilarity and tenderness abound in this novel narrated in
