In her exuberant, breezy new novel, Raffaella Barker creates a thoroughly delightful, thoroughly British rural comedy starring a woman whose life resists any and all sense of order.

When Venetia's boyfriend, David, takes a temporary job in Bermuda, she finds herself suddenly alone with her three boisterous children, an assortment of dogs and ducks, and a freelance career that drives her to any form of procrastination. All too soon her life devolves into chaos, which is only exacerbated by her brother's impending wedding, by David's indefinite transfer to the Brazilian jungle, and by the awkward but persistent advances of a wealthy new neighbor. Still, Venetia manages somehow -- whether burying a dead chicken or visiting the local army tank museum -- to entertain and revel in her unruly brood. Her frankness and flair are a total delight.
