Landline by Rainbow Rowell
This book sent chills down my spine and brought tears to my eyes. It is a love story and a magical time bending mystery. When Georgie decides to stay home because of an important deadline at work, her husband, Neal,takes the kids to his mother's house anyway and leaves her home alone. Then she realizes how much she loves him and misses him and when she calls him from the landline phone at her mother's house, she reaches him in the past before they ever married. She wonders if speaking to him like this will change the future like in the movie "Back To The Future" but still, she is drawn to the landline phone and calls the Neal of the past again and again as she wonders about the state of their marriage and her job and her family and more. Fabulous story!
