Product description


"The Switch brilliantly encompasses all the humor and whimsy of The Flatshare while delving into emotional topics like grief and the importance of watching out for neighbors. Charismatic Eileen stands out as the star of this witty, joyful show, illustrating that mature women need love, too."
--Booklist, starred review

[A] cozy, hopeful escape that will make readers laugh, cry, or feel inspired. --Kirkus, starred review

"The Switch was refreshing, engaging and thoroughly enjoyable. This story has everything you could ask for: witty characters, strong female relationships and a view about love that'd make anyone hopeful." --Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author

"In this time of increased isolation, The Switch offers a hopeful reminder to reach out to our neighbors with an open mind. It's a cozy, lovely story about how community matters more than ever."
--BookPage, starred review

"I am SO LOVING The Switch! It's so sweet and uplifting
and SUCH a balm in these wretched times." --Marian Keyes, internationally bestselling author

"Reading this felt like checking in on old friends. A bright, life-affirming story with beautifully rich characters." -Abby Jimenez, bestselling author of The Friend Zone

"I loved it! It was a total joy to read. I loved the concept, the relationship between Eileen and Leena and the wonderful cast of friends both in London and Yorkshire. And it was such a breath of fresh air to read about a 79-year old woman dating (and even - hurrah! - having sex!) The exact kind of thing I believe we need to see more of in books and films. Eileen gives me great hope for the future! I shall be recommending it to my friends."
--Libby Page, author of The Lido

"Set to become the romcom of the year...a Sleepless In Seattle for the 21st century." --Sunday Express Magazine (UK)

"The novel equivalent of a cup of hot tea." --Refinery29
