Island Wife tells the story of Judy, who, at 19, met her Wild Pioneer. He whisked her off into an adventure, a marriage of forty years, and a life on a remote Hebridean island. Along the way she bears five children, learns how to run a rocky hill farm, a hotel, a recording studio and the first whale watching business in the UK - all the while inventively making fraying ends meet. When her children start to leave home, things fall apart and there is sadness and joy in how she puts things back together. Judy tells her story in a clear and unique voice, in turns funny, unforgettable and intensely moving.

Only just started this book and already I'm giggling and snorting as I read it! Maybe it's my Scottish heritage that helps me appreciate it all the more, but I am seriously enjoying this book!

I laughed and cried as I read this book - great story of an amazing life with so many frustrations and triumphs, told with great humour and honesty: really, really recommend it!
