    This book was reviewed in the latest issue of Backyard Poultry Magazine. Here is the review:
    "Quite a Year for Plums: A Novel" by Bailey White
    This absolutely charming look at the idiosyncratic folks in a small Georgia town stars Roger, the peanut pathologist; his erstwhile girlfriend Della, the bird artist who struggles over every painting; and a host of other intertwined characters who all have opinions on what is happening in each others lives. Della becomes enchanted with the intricate plumage of a heritage flock of Dominiques (pictured on the cover) and her painting of America's oldest breed eventually ends up in the prestigious Birds in Art show, not to mention the permanent collection of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. A lovely book that is impossible to put down.

    My copy of this book is paperback and in like-new condition!
