9780141021720: Life Swap

From the outside Vicky Townsley would appear to have it all. Features Director of the hugely successful Poise! magazine, she lives alone in London, is single, solvent, and seriously successful. But she'd give it all up in a heartbeat for marriage, children, and a house in the country. Amber Winslow on the other hand, has exactly what Vicky Townsley wants; a huge stone mansion in Highfield Connecticut, children and a busy charitable commitment for the local Women's League. But Amber isn't happy either. She hasn't found quite the fulfillment she had expected from being a full-time wife and mother, so when she spots a double page spread in Poise! magazine asking married readers to life swap with a glamorous, single journalist in London, she sits down and writes a letter. But she never expects to be picked...Life Swap is the story of what really happens when two women decide to walk in one another's shoes for one month. It's the story of the grass not being as green as you might think, and of discovering that happiness is not always where you expect it to be

Jane and her husband live in Connecticut with their blended family of six children.

From AudioFile:

An old story--two women exchanging lives for a month--has suddenly caught fire this year, in fiction and film, and is here superbly ignited by the incomparable Rosalyn Landor. She develops the two main characters into believable, full-bodied women: Amber, the discontented, wealthy Connecticut suburban wife and mother, and Vicky, the British magazine editor who craves love and a mate. Green takes a long time to develop her plot, but Landor keeps the pace going. Her vocal characterizations easily travel "across the Pond," from those of the soft-spoken American wife and mom to the sometimes brittle and authoritative English career woman. The outcome is no surprise--the swappers discover that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
