  1. This sounds very thoughtful and clever. I’m intrigued by the exploration of trauma and setting a challenge for oneself because I think we’ve seen a lot of that during the pandemic, what with people taking on projects and making big life changes.

  2. For some reason this book puts me in mind of a certain subset of mommy bloggers who were into the twee homesteading trend in the late aughts. There were a few who got chickens! I dunno how I feel about the book honestly, feeling a lot of peer pressure to read it, haha

    • I can understand the pressure; it’s definitely doing the rounds within our circles at the moment, lol. The setup certainly has the potential to veer into twee, but I was pleasantly surprised by the subtlety of the delivery!

  3. I never thought that I would want to read a book where chickens play such a prominent role, but here we are.

  4. The chicken book! I’ve heard so much about this 🙂 I thought I was tired of books about motherhood but actually I really like the idea of looking at it through the perspective of ‘mothering’ animals.

  6. Sounds like an intriguing story with a sympathetic protagonist. Thanks for recommending this- will definitely put it on my reading list!
