Sleeping Partners

(2004)
A novel by

 
 
When Pauline Watkins wakes up one morning to discover she's thirty-nine, she decides Something Must Be Done. About her marriage to a partner who thinks that bedtime is just for sleeping, about her routine job - her routine life. An exotic holiday would be a start, and fairexchange.biz offers a solution - swap her council estate semi outside Leicester for a piece of paradise in Australia. Pauline presses Send. On the other side of the world, Loma Mackenzie has reached a similar conclusion, but for a rather different reason: her sleeping partner is sleeping around. A family wedding provides the excuse for Loma to sweep her mother and her faithless husband up into Business Class and head chez Watkins. It may be better to travel hopefully than to arrive, but for Pauline and Loma, a holiday swap turns into the journey of a lifetime.
