Out Of The Blue

Out Of The Blue

by Joanna Fincham

This is the story of how Jo tackled her demons, found love and created a new, healthy, happy life free from depression. It’s a story of how love really can conquer all and how life on the land can heal and nurture you.

Inspiring, warm and fiercely honest, this is a wonderful personal account of overcoming adversity and making the most of life.


When Joanna Fincham appeared on a popular reality TV program in 2008 looking for love, little did the viewers know that Jo had been suffering from depression on and off throughout life.

Jo, it seemed, was a vivacious city girl looking for love with a handsome farmer. On screen she appeared bubbly, warm and happy but in reality she had struggled with depression and bulimia for many years, both illnesses bringing their own difficulties and experiences.

Despite her struggles, Jo went on to find love on the show with Farmer Rob. In a fairytale ending Jo moved to the countryside and left her city life behind her. Now living on their farm in South Australia, Rob and Jo got married and had a gorgeous baby daughter.

I was filling in time recently and decided to have a look in a bookshop and came across ‘Out Of The Blue’ by Joanna Fincham. For those of you who watch The Farmer Wants A Wife – Joanna was the bright bubbly girl who won the heart of Farmer Rob, got married and they have a little girl. The surprising part is that behind the smile, laugh and bubbliness is a girl who fought depression. When I started reading it I couldn’t put it down and I read it in 4 days so if anyone else is interested I highly recommend buying and reading it.
