Feathers fly when a New York City "Crowing Hen" moves south to Georgia- "Poultry Capital of the World". Dottie Snodgrasss is Irish and she's Catholic. She is married to a Jewish Dentist. When they settle into North Georgia, she feels like she has landed on another planet. With few friends, she copes with a flood of insidious biases and social changes of the 1960's South- urban professional versus rural farmers, local yocals versus "people off from here". Add to the mix her own conflicts, that of being a faithful mother with a philandering husband, and you have both reason and recipe for murder. Dottie becomes a sleuth to prove her innocense. She teaches the locals a thing or two about stewardship of the good earth and southern civility.
"When The Chickens Come Home To Roost" is guaranteed to ruffle your feathers. You'll be cackling about this book long after the chickens have been hatched and counted.
