Hens Dancing, by Raffaella Barker

An amusing novel about a woman living in an ancient cottage in the Norfolk countryside raising flowers and hens and children--what could be bad? However, I almost gave up on this book at the first chapter when the heroine admitted to an addiction to the Regency romances of Georgette Heyer. Lucky for me, I got over it and continued on.

I'm glad I persevered. Hens Dancing could certainly be called a light-hearted romp, but it was a lot of fun and I found myself giggling as I turned the pages toward the anticipated and highly satisfactory ending. Watch for the hen joke...
