Landline - Rainbow Rowell

Landline - Rainbow Rowell

There can't be all that many novels about women TV writers trying to move up to their own show and being a show-runner, so it's odd that I read two so close to each other. This one is also a bit of magical realism. And it was adorable. I don't know what I expected, but it wasn't a story about a marriage on the rocks, let alone one about a phone from the twilight zone that enables the heroine to call her husband in the past. I love that the fantastic element is acknowledged to be weird, but that it isn't ever explained. Anyway, the marriage and the stresses therein felt real, as well as the desire to reconnect and make things better.
