Told from the perspective of a wife, her husband and his alleged mistress, this novel offers a glaringly intimate glimpse into a marriage. You’ll feel sympathy for all of the characters as each tells their side of the story.
THE AFFAIR by Colette Freedman is an intimate look inside a marriage on the rocks. This author really does show that there are three sides to every marriage story—his, hers, and the truth.
Although truth is subjective, upon the telling, it is Kathy Walker’s that resonated with me. However, I didn’t see Stephanie Burroughs as a home wrecker either and neither does Kathy. Robert’s truth is somewhat selfish in nature, but given his circumstances, you can see how he ended up in this situation. He’s the wounded bird that Stephanie is helping, and he’s a husband and father to a family who needs him to keep them in the standard of which they are living. Meanwhile, Kathy tries to get the marriage back on some standing and faces some hard truths of her own, but Robert’s too deep in his own situation to see it. However, the end is something you won’t see coming!
Colette Freedman’s THE AFFAIR is a standalone novel, but you will look forward to her next title.
The Affair gives a interesting view point on cheating. The story is told in three parts. Each part focus on a different person, the wife, the husband and the mistress. They each tell their own story, their own views. Freedman, manages to make each character likable, which is amazing considering the subject matter. Freedman makes it possible for you to live your emotions through the wife, empathize with the husband and the mistress. That’s right. I said empathize. You absolutely have to read this book to find out why. They story is gripping and emotional. Expect a few redundancy’s since the story is repeated three times. The story flows and is beautifully written.
