"A heroine whom readers will root for, and the fun quirky cast of
characters (and animals) will keep the laughter flowing.... [A]
story that fans of Vanessa Diffenbaugh's The Language of
Flowers will devour."--Library Journal
"Delightful reading... McNeil's lovely prose and plotting make this offering a universal tale for starting over."--Publishers Weekly
"Add A GOOD YEAR FOR THE ROSES to the growing number of novels in which unsuspecting women are lured to the countryside to be met with hilariously obstinate poultry, batty relatives, and hard-earned success. Utterly charming."--Booklist
