Lovereading view...

The story of Martin and Susan’s marriage and the friends and relations around them. Each character has their own voice which gives the reader a great perspective on how different people have such different views on the same situation. A bittersweet story that moves with great pace due to each character taking up the story one after the other. Love, passion and betrayal all make for an absorbing read.


Love and Other Infidelities by Helen Townsend

How many does it take to make a marriage? And how many does it take to destroy one?

The Husband - She was the boss's daughter - but I wanted her. I didn't know Susan would have a checklist for married life: the house, the garden, the kids, the schools...

The Wife - I hadn't wanted a boring life. That's why I chose Martin. But once we had the kids other things became important - like knowing if he would come home at night.

The Other Woman - With Martin and me it was more than just sex. We felt the same about life, freedom and fun. But then my biological clock started ticking...

The Vicar - I ought to be preaching about patience and forgiveness. But I've been in love with Susan for years, and even a Man of God has his temptations...
