Love Hurts . . .

An affair. Wife, mistress, the man in the middle. Laugh it off only to lie awake worrying later. Is this really happening? When it implodes, what then?

The assistant didn’t mean to fall in love and become the other woman. The wife was just venturing her first steps into life beyond the roles of mother and partner when her suspicions about another woman took root.

When the well-respected man sinks deeper into mental illness, each person’s next move isn’t a question of blame alone, but of the ethics of love—of unapologetic decisions and confronting the aftermath.


A contemporary and spellbindingly believable take on an old theme . . . [Woolf] will have women everywhere debating the dilemmas of wives and mistresses, loyalty and betrayal.
