When his wife tosses Frank Midland out of his farmhouse the weekend after Thanksgiving, he meets two friends at a diner and discovers that they, too, are banished from home by busy women already preparing for Christmas. The men hatch a plan to swap wives for a day to teach them a lesson in perspective. But in the six weeks before Christmas, the wives vow revenge with a plan of their own, and the entire community of Clearview, Virginia becomes involved.Meanwhile, a devious developer threatens to ruin the town centre, a mysterious stranger appears and reappears, a savvy newspaper photographer aligns with a talented seamstress and her physically challenged son, and local citizens are spellbound by reports of an illusive and rare white fawn. As the Swap moves forward, plans go awry, secrets are spilled, and lives are transformed, while Frank and his friends discover surprising lessons in perspective they had never imagined. This book is about love in all its wondrous variety of husbands and wives, parents and children, people and animals, citizens and their community all tied to a small town struggling to preserve its rural soul.
