Review: Crossed Wires by Rosy Thornton

Crossed Wires by Rosy Thornton is a charming, cozy and gentle novel about two single parents whose lives cross by fate through the phone lines of the call center at an auto insurance company. Mina is a single mom of one shy and isolated daughter Sal and works at the call center. Peter is a widow and single dad of twins Cassie and Kim who is struggling with his own loneliness. They live in different villages two hours away from each other and develop a friendship through their phone calls. They share their feelings and issues related to parenthood and support each other along the way, all at a distance. Their lives connect unexpectedly and it is enjoyable to watch their friendship develop along the way. Crossed Wires is a slow paced and delightful book to read with a cup of tea or coffee by your side as you discover the joys life can bring to two people whose lives cross by fate. Crossed Wires highlights those unexpected friendships that have the possibility to grow and change you as a person and bring joy to your life unexpectedly.
