This review is from: Hens Dancing (Paperback)
I'm new to the kaleidoscope colours of Raffaella Barker's prose and I am hooked. Hens Dancing is a blend of humour, life's little ironies, real people in a real life setting with a twist of the promise of better things to come.
Venetia makes it through the disaster of a divorce and keeps her family (Felix, Giles and The Beauty), sense of humour, assorted pets and wellington boots bonded together in the face of some trying times. The variety of characters and their oddball ways (Venetia's mother, The Gnome, David, Rose and Tristan to name but a few... there are loads of people in this story) keep your interest piqued throughout. If you like a fun, witty and transporting read, then Hens Dancing is the book for you.
I'm off now to buy everything else she has ever written!
