Mailbox Monday-June 1st






Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share what books that we found in our mailboxes last week. I had a very light week and only received one wonderful book! It's a good thing as it allows me to catch up on reading the books that I have waiting and on library books. I am being more selective of the books that I am accepting to read and review and am only accepting those that I am certain that I want to read.








Crossed Wires by Rosy Thornton (From the author, check out her website here)


Here's the description of the book from the authors website:


This is the story of Peter, a Cambridge geography don who crashes his car into a tree stump when swerving to avoid a cat, and Mina, the girl at the Sheffield call centre who deals with his insurance claim. It tracks their parallel lives, as well those of their families - because both Peter and Mina are single parents.


An old-fashioned fairy tale of love across the class divide, it is also a book about the small joys and tribulations of parenthood; about one-ness and two-ness; about symmetry and coincidence; about the things which separate us and the things which bring us together.


It is a story, in fact, of the accidents of geography.

  3. The author was kind enough to offer to send this one to me but I declined. Too much on my plate and it didn't appear to be my cup of tea. I could be totally wrong on that after your review!
