‘Hens Dancing’

Greetings, I have been reading ‘Hens Dancing’ by Rafaella Barker after my Mother recommended it as it is her favourite book. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of this book. I am actually quite surprised by this as I do not always enjoy contemporary literature, especially literature that is aimed at […]
