Review: The Switch by Beth O’Leary

I finished my copy in just a few days while on vacation. A perfect lakeside read.

This book was a perfect summer read and a wonderful follow up to THE FLATSHARE. 

The story is told from dual POVs of 79 year old Elaine and her granddaughter Leena in alternating chapters as they switch lives for 2 months. Elaine heads to a shared flat in London while Leena moves to a tiny village in the countryside.

They both must learn to live way outside their comfort zone but luckily they each have a wonderful cast of supporting characters to help them along the way.

THE SWITCH is full of heart and humour and also tackles some important subjects in a way that never feels heavy. O’Leary’s writing is totally immersive and highly readable. I didn’t want this one to end.
