A chicken knows only what it can see. A chicken’s life is full of magic. Lo and behold.
A fictional story that read rather like a memoir, this short novel held so many wonderful, accurate descriptions of backyard chickens. And I loved it. Because…..backyard chickens!!! The author used caring for these feathered friends to serve as the thread with which she wove themes of vulnerability and fragility, grief and loss. It worked, but I wished for more.
