It was all my fault. I nagged poor long-suffering Joe into abandoning England and settling into a tiny Spanish mountain village. Perhaps if we’d seen the culture shock in store, we might have hesitated, but then ‘Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools’ would never have been written…
‘Chickens’ is the story of our life with the villagers, how we became reluctant chicken farmers, destroyed the village fountain, captured a vulture, were rescued by a mule and much, much more.
For readers who may be keen cooks, chapters are interspersed with Spanish recipes given to me by the village ladies.
What they're saying about it:
“...a charming and funny expat tale’’ --Daily Telegraph, UK
“Weeks later, you will be standing at your kitchen window doing the dishes and recall some fleeting scene with chickens or mules or two old fools and laugh out loud all over again”--The Catalunya Chronicle
“…one of those rare ‘warm the soul’ non-fiction books. Simple, divine, & it makes you laugh out loud…”--Amazon Reviewer
