5 Minutes for Books — Wife in the North

by Jennifer Donovan

Judith O’Reilly agrees to move with her husband to northern sheep territory in England — away from her job, friends and beloved city of London. This is how she becomes Wife in the North.

The book is written journal style, and after reading several chapters, I thought that it seemed to be a lot like a blog — covering topics from food, to friendship, to nursing babies and disciplining preschoolers. And then I discovered that it had indeed started as a blog.

Judith O’Reilly began the blog to chronicle her move to the North of England, to help her husband live out his dream. When she gets there, she’s frustrated by her house, the neighbors, the bullying that her son endures at school, her husband’s absence while he’s working in London, the responsibilities of a new baby and a new home and a new life.

I find that when I read now, certain themes resonate with me — such as friendship, marriage, and the many roles that a woman serves as she navigates through her life, and in this memoir O’Reilly covers these. If you enjoy reading personal blogs, and specifically stories that illuminate a different lifestyle than you are living, I think you’d like this.

I found myself shaking my head at her, just as I would my sister or a friend who keeps complaining the same complaints over and over — “Instead of fussing at your husband for leaving the car empty, why don’t you fill the gas tank yourself?” But sometimes as a woman juggling all the balls that we do in the air, there are things that we rely on others to do for us — our friends, our husbands, even our children. O’Reilly captures the reality, frustration and incongruity of this perfectly.

That sounds like a great book. I will definitely be putting it on my wishlist. I also love the cover. I wouldn’t have expected to hear of a book about a wife living in sheep country inside a book with red high heels on the cover! Intriguing.

In theory, I would love to move to Northern England and live in sheep country. Maybe I’ll change my mind after I read the book.

The theme of this book represents the dream that keeps me going. I have a recurring fantasy of running away from it all by going “up north” to either Canada, Newfoundland, or Nova Scotia. At this point, I’d settle for Northern Maine. My husband is on board with the whole idea, but with three kids under the age of three, and no $$$, it might be a while until we can set the plan into motion. I would love to read this book, and if I don’t win it, then I will look for it in my local library.

Just seen what you are doing here. Delighted to see this much interest – thankyou so much. In the UK, Wife in the North was in the top 10 non fiction reads for five weeks and was number 3 for a month, and it has been optioned for TV. It is the UK’s fastest blog to book (in fact, I only got the book deal because I was picked up by a copuple of UK political bloggers and then US political blogger Andrew Sullivan who took me from zero readers to 15,000 overnight. The book is fundamentally about what it is to be a wife and mother and daughter, it is about love and relationships and family. It’s funny but warning – it’s sad too, but then so is life. Anyway I am really hoping it works for US readers in the same way as it has worked in the UK. It is more than my diary – when I had the offer of a book deal, I decided I wanted to write a book which was about fundamental things which I wasn’t seeing elsewhere like how a mother feels when she loves a child, breastfeeding, postnatal depression, stillbirth, etc. I am hoping it is a book women connect with. Thanks again for the interest.
Best wishes
