The Affair

“A realistic and deft tale of infidelity, miscommunication, and conflicting emotions” offering readers an honest, raw portrayal of marriage (Publishers Weekly).
 
After eighteen years of marriage, Kathy Walker has settled into her comfortable routines: ferrying her two teenagers between soccer practice and piano lessons; running a film production business with her husband, Robert; and taking care of the beautiful Boston home they share.
 
Then Kathy discovers a suspicious number on her husband’s phone. But she’s hesitant to act on impulse alone. Six years before, Kathy had accused Robert of infidelity—a charge he vehemently denied—and almost destroyed their marriage in the process.
 
Now Kathy must decide whether to follow her suspicions at the risk of losing everything or trust the man with whom she’s entwined her past, present, and future. As she grapples with that choice, she is confronted with surprising truths not just about her relationship, but about her friends, family, and her own motivations.

Skillfully crafted and deeply insightful, this “compelling debut novel” sensitively explores the complexities of love and the challenge of ever knowing another person fully, even as we endeavor to understand our own deepest longings (Publishers Weekly).
