Abstract:

ISLAND WIFE tells the story of Judy who, at 19, meets her Wild Pioneer. He whisks her off into an adventure: a marriage of forty years, and life on a remote Hebridean island. Along the way, she bears five children, learns how to run a farm and holiday cottages, and starts a recording studio and the island's first whale-watching business with her husband - all 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 them back together. Judy tells her story in a clear and unique voice - in turns funny, unforgettable and intensely moving.
