This is the story of a Grandmother and Granddaughter who are trying to heal from a painful loss by swapping their places for two months.

Eileen is a 79 years old lady living in the countryside of Yorkshire whereas Leena is living in London. After messing up an important presentation, Leena was ordered to take a two-month sabbatical. She visits her Grandmother, Eileen, to take the much-needed rest.

Eileen is a newly single lady and about to turn 80. In a bizarre idea, Eileen and Leena decide to swap their places and have an adventure. The whole story revolves around Eileen and Leena figuring out what and who makes them truly happy.


I picked this book without reading the blurb, I wanted to have a blind date with this book. I kinda guessed what the story will be like when I first read the title. To be honest, I imagined it to be in some sort of fantasy. But to my surprise, this was a completely heartwarming, almost realistic book.

I used the word almost because I don’t totally believe the events in this plot could happen in the real-world scenario. Nevertheless, I loved the plot and the characters.

This is mostly a character-driven book than a plot-driven. As you read, you can totally guess the plot but the character development was very beautiful and wholesome.

This is one such book that is heartwarming, endearing, and sweet that makes you feel good after a long hard day. I took my time to read this book because it was very cute and sweet that I don’t want it to end.

Read this book if you are in the mood to read something sweet, wholesome, cute book with lovely characters.
