A memoir of a woman's life on a remote Scottish island: from young girl to wife to mother of five, hotelier and domestic miracle worker. Funny and tender, this is a book of endless horizons and a breath of fresh air. 'An unflinching and hugely entertaining story of family travails and triumphs.' - Kirsty Wark 'A sensitive, brave and honest look at a life lived in the wake of others' needs.' - The Daily Mail 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.

“I couldn't put it down”

This book is addictive. Once I started I couldn't put it down. I've now bought a copy for my mum I'm sure she will love it as much as me.
