Reader recommendation: Twenty Chickens for a Saddle

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I am reading Twenty Chickens for a Saddle by Robyn Scott. Seldom have I found such a rare and captivating read. Scott was homeschooled in Botswana and we follow her delightful childhood through their family's life on the fringe. As a fan of Alexander McCall Smith's "No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" series, I found this even more delightful.
