THE WOEFIELD POULTRY COLLECTIVE

woefieldSUSAN JUBY

This is a great read: fun and funny yet poignant.

Ingrediants: Prudence Burns of Brooklyn, failed young adult novelist and a bit of a righteous cause-ist, inherits a farm on Vancouver Island; Seth, an alcoholic shut-in blogger who hadn’t been out of his mother’s house for over five years; Earl, a crotchety old farmhand who comes with the land and plays bluegrass and passes along nuggets of wisdom like “[it] don’t pay to ask questions about things that is none of your business”, Earl has an important secret; and Sara Spratt, an adorably plucky teen from a broken home, Sara is the one with the chickens and a lot of guts to put up with the likes of Seth and Earl. Put them all together and you end up with this wonderful book.juby
