Beschreibung

Eileen is sick of being 79.
Leena's tired of life in her twenties.
Maybe it's time they swapped places...

When overachiever Leena Cotton is ordered to take a two-month sabbatical after blowing a big presentation at work, she escapes to her grandmother Eileen's house for some overdue rest. Eileen is newly single and about to turn eighty. She'd like a second chance at love, but her tiny Yorkshire village doesn't offer many eligible gentlemen.

Once Leena learns of Eileen's romantic predicament, she proposes a solution: a two-month swap. Eileen can live in London and look for love. Meanwhile Leena will look after everything in rural Yorkshire. But with gossiping neighbours and difficult family dynamics to navigate up north, and trendy London flatmates and online dating to contend with in the city, stepping into one another's shoes proves more difficult than either of them expected.

Leena learns that a long-distance relationship isn't as romantic as she hoped it would be, and then there is the annoyingly perfect - and distractingly handsome - school teacher, who keeps showing up to outdo her efforts to impress the local villagers. Back in London, Eileen is a huge hit with her new neighbours, but is her perfect match nearer home than she first thought?

Beth O'Leary is a
Sunday Times bestselling author whose novels have been translated into more than thirty languages. Her debut,
The Flatshare, sold over half a million copies and changed her life completely. Her second novel,
The Switch, has been optioned for film by Amblin Partners, Steven Spielberg's production company. Beth writes her books in the Hampshire countryside with a very badly behaved Golden Retriever for company. If she's not at her desk, you'll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).

This booked prooved me that Beth O'Leary's FLATSHARE was not just a one hit wonder. Like FLATSHARE I loved THE SWITCH as well. Cool story, cool characters! Almost read it in one go.

Where could she do that better than in rural Yorkshire at the home of her grandma. 79 year old Eileen on the other hand feels too bored in her small village with no eligible bachelors. Recently deserted by her futile husband, she's looking for new experiences and most of all for some romance. On a whim they decide to swap accomodation, circle of friends and cellphones for 2 months. What is seemingly a light comedy has underneath it all some very serious topics. Which made me like this story even more. I found both storylines equally interesting and grew fond also of the supporting characters, like Arnold, Letitia or Nicola. I'm not sure of such a 'switch' would work for everyone, but it definitely benefited Leena and Eileen, and a whole bunch of other people connected to them, too.
