Evidence Of The Affair by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Lying has just become so much easier than telling the truth. I don’t remember when things got so hard. But life has been a matter of keeping our heads above water for years now

Synopsis

A desperate young woman in Southern California sits down to write a letter to a man she’s never met—a choice that will forever change both their lives.

My heart goes out to you, David. Even though I do not know you…

The correspondence between Carrie Allsop and David Mayer reveals, piece by piece, the painful details of a devastating affair between their spouses. With each commiserating scratch of the pen, they confess their fears and bare their souls. They share the bewilderment over how things went so wrong and come to wonder where to go from here.

Review

Taylor Jenkins Reid is my new favorite author. Ever since I’ve read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, I wanted to read more of her work. She hasn’t disappointed me at all.

Carrie seeks some comfort with a man she barely knows. They share one thing in common, their spouses are having an affair with each other. Quite different from anything I’ve read. Their correspondences were riveting from the start because finding comfort from someone who you don’t know is very different approach when dealing with infidelity.

A very light read but with such heavy emotion. I give this story 5 stars. A fast pace story with a touch of heartbreak and hope. Loved it to bits!
