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 …
I love the cover for this book it makes you want to get started. It is set out like a diary of all the things Judith and her family get up to which I liked. Some of the diary entries are quite short which made me want to read a few more. I did chuckle at a few things as I remembered my childhood. Whether you have children or not you will still enjoy this story. Poor Judith.
