What if a successful, single Londoner and a comfortable, Connecticut mother of two were to walk in each other’s shoes for a month? Vicky Townsley is the director of Poise! magazine and lives a glamorous London life. She has everything she wants—except marriage, children, and a house in the country. Amber Winslow has a stone mansion in Connecticut, two kids, and a nanny, but she hasn’t found the fulfillment she had expected from being a wife and mother. When she spots an intriguing contest in Poise!, Amber never expects to be picked.

A must-read for every modern woman who’s ever considered the road not taken, Swapping Lives is a warm and realistic chronicle of two women who do more than wonder if the grass is greener on the other side of the Atlantic.

Jane Green Warburg has written eleven novels, several of which were New York Times bestsellers. A native Londoner, she lives in Connecticut with her husband and their blended family of six children. www.janegreen.com

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Book This book was a lighthearted and fun read. The book centers around two women who at the point in which we meet them aren't sure they are satisfied with the lives they are living. One is an American stay at home mom who is trying to keep up with the socialites. The other works for a british magazine, is single and thinks she wants a family. When they swap Lives they realize that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. This book was an easy and quick read!

Editorial Reviews

"A charming book that demands, "Read me in one sitting!" - People"A perfect summer read ... funny, poignant ..." - Toronto Sun"Green skewers Connecticut suburbia with gleeful relish, and she hits the right marks with sympathetic Londoner Vicky, a quirky, imperfect heroine." - Kirkus Reviews"Hard to put down ... thanks to affable leading characters and interesting ... commentary on the cross-Atlantic cultural gap." - Publishers Weekly
