I purchased this book at Target on a whim, it caught my eye as I cruised by an end-of-aisle display. The title made me think it was a trashy, easy read, something that would be fun to take to the cabin some weekend. To my surprise and delight, it was a very interesting story that takes place in England about a middle-aged couple whose marriage faces some serious troubles, and how they are resolved. I enjoyed it very much.
I started this book thinking it would be a cliche' romance book about adultery, but Tess Stimson really gave a indepth view of how adultery can affect lives. Once I started the book I could put it down!
I thought I would open this book and read hot, juicy words that are usually in the hot and heavy romance books. This NOT so.
This is more of a personal look into a fictional couples lives, each one seperately, and you can read how they interpret the same conversation 2 different ways, you can really feel the stress and worry that the wife has with her children and how she thinks......Then comes the OTHER woman: This is the first book I have read ( and I usualy read over 50 a year) That really looks inside the OTHER womans thought process, and how they truelu think that things are so very different from what they really are.... and that is is hust the way the mind turns things to be the way you would WNAT them to interpret them. I did enjoy this book.
Entertaining? I would say MORE ENLIGHTENING.
ANd I don't consider th=e time I spent reading this a waste, because it in it's own way was informative and let you see all 3 sides to the story.
