Wife in the North by Judith O'Reilly

Book Description

How far would you go to be the perfect mother? The hilarious "Wife in the North" by Judith O'Reilly, based on her enormously popular blog, recounts one woman's attempt to move her family and her life from cosmopolitan London to rural Northumberland. Maybe hormones ate her brain. How else did Judith's husband persuade her to give up her career and move from her beloved London to Northumberland with two toddlers in tow? Pregnant with number 3 Judith is about to discover that there are one or two things about life in the country that no one told her about: that she'd be making friends with people who believed in the four horsemen of the apocalypse; that running out of petrol could be a near death experience and that the closest thing to an ethnic minority would be a redhead. Judith tries to do that simple thing that women do, make hers a happy family. A family that might live happily ever after. Possibly even up North..."Genuinely funny and genuinely moving". (Jane Fallon, author of "Getting Rid of Matthew"). "Cold Comfort Farm with booster seats. Funny, honest and moving". (Stephanie Calman, author of "Confessions of a Bad Mother"). "I howled with laughter, tears of recognition at every page". (Jenny Colgan). "Funny, poignant and beautifully written". (Lisa Jewell). Judith O'Reilly, a journalist and the mother of three young children, was persuaded to move from London to Northumberland by her husband in August 2005. She started a blog, wifeinthenorth.com, in November 2006, which quickly picked up fans around the world with its witty tales of family and country life. Her second book "A Year of Doing Good" is published by Penguin.
