LANDLINE
Read by Rebecca Lowman
BY RAINBOW ROWELL
  
ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
From the New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, comes a hilarious, heart-wrenching take on love, marriage, and magic phones.

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply—but that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her—Neal is always a little upset with Georgie—but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts. . . .

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

PRAISE FOR LANDLINE:
“Rowell’s writing deftly avoids cliché, and the book’s action builds cleverly as Lowman skillfully sweeps listeners along to the satisfying, romantic, hopeful conclusion.” – AudioFile  

“Lowman captures the sweetness and vulnerability of the couple’s college courtship; there are intimate moments, spoken slowly and seductively, that are lovely and voyeuristic, including the couple’s first kiss.” – Publishers Weekly

“A fantastic recording of an equally fantastic novel. Rebecca Lowman’s narration deftly captures the pacing of this tale, and her impressive ability to portray distinct voices enhances the listening experience.” – Library Journal

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
RAINBOW ROWELL lives in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband and two sons. She's also the author of Fangirl, Eleanor & Park, and Attachments. When she’s not writing, Rainbow Rowell is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing with people about things that don’t really matter in the big scheme of things. She has two sons, and if God hears her prayers, they will grow up just as nerdy and true-hearted as the protagonists of her books.

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEW:
Rainbow Rowell has once again written a delightful book. Unfortunately, I am not ready to review all of it but will tell you that so far the audio book has me enchanted. I loved Rainbow Rowell's book ELEANOR & PARK and can't wait to finish this new one while I catch up from my birthday break last weekend. I hope many of you who haven't experienced the delight that is Rainbow Rowell will check out her books. I also hope you will visit my review of Rowell's book ELEANOR & PARK HERE because I think LANDLINE is going to be every bit as good as that and you can see how much I enjoyed it.

My second marriage is so much better than my first that I hestitate to read about a floundering marriage. I wish the fictional characters luck in reparing theirs.
