Once upon a time Chris Beggs and her husband had a dream – to one day own a farm, with cows and poultry and a white fence surrounding a quaint cottage. So what could possibly be wrong with fulfilling that dream 15 years later as a 38 year old divorced mother of two?

Chris says goodbye to her city life and hello to dawn egg collections, strange noises in the night, a feisty alpaca and poultry named after political figures. Meanwhile, her teenage daughter is bent on world domination, the bookkeeper is out for revenge and the tractor has a mind of its own. And soon Chris realises that the least of her worries is dressing in a chicken suit and learning how to waddle.

With the enthusiastic help of her family, old friends, new neighbours, and a stranger on the end of daily emails, can Chris succeed in making this spur of the moment decision revitalise her life, or has she put all her eggs in the wrong basket?
