Summary
Marilyn Vine's idyllic life in Connecticut is devastated by the tragic death of her only son, Dale, during his 15th birthday party. 3,000 miles away, Ria Lynch's marriage comes to a stunningly abrupt end in Dublin, Ireland, when husband Danny reveals that he is leaving her for his pregnant mistress, Bernadette. An accidental phone call brings these two otherwise unrelated women together and, in their mutual need for space and time alone, they agree to a two-month house exchange. In swapping homes, both women slowly find healing and strength through new surroundings and the kindness of others and gradually learn to accept the reality of their changed lives
