Wife in the North, Judith O'Reilly's funny and acutely observed memoir of being uprooted from the London she loves to live in the country among sheep shearers and a lot of mud, and which sprouted out of her blog of the same name, is already a bestseller in the UK. Today it's available in the US and while I could describe the book in more detail here, I think the below video pretty much sums it up, quite hilariously as well. Watch it. Then read an excerpt and check out the reading group guide.
I also have ten copies to give away! But it comes with a challenge: what's your "Wife in the North" story? While you may not have been asked to pull a full-on Green Acres like O'Reilly was, many of us have made changes in our lives since and because of marriage. Tell us about a change you've made and how it changed you -- be it funny or serious.
