Five French Hens by Judy Leigh
Published January 24, 2021
This ended up being a lovely book but it took me a while to adjust to the style of it. It dips back and forth between five characters, very different women, who come together to celebrate the impending wedding of one of them. I liked that. It felt like there was a lot of minute detail, a lot of analysing each woman’s thoughts, and I couldn’t decide how I felt about that. On the one hand, it made things a bit drawn out, it felt like forever before they actually got to Paris. But on the other hand, it really helped to bring these characters to life, highlighting their differences and similarities and bonding them together more.
