Indiscretion by Charles Dubow as it deals with the subject of infidelity. But then I read Marisa's review of this book and thought maybe it was something I should check out. So when it showed up on the list of books I could review for TLC book tours, I decided to give it a chance. I am so glad that I did.
Indiscretion tells the story of Harry and Maddy Winslow, a couple that seems to have a picture perfect marriage. But then young, sweet, and seemingly naive Claire arrives on the scene and a marriage that had the strongest foundation is swept away. The book addresses the consequences of Harry and Claire's actions, and the reason I really liked it is that is does justice to the way lives are torn apart and the irreparable damage that is done when a spouse decides to cheat.
The story is told from the perspective of Maddy's best friend from her childhood and at times, it reads as if the narrator is talking to you - which is unique. But it works. I thought the book was well-written and I found myself marking various passages and sentences such as "We make so many right decisions in life, but it is the wrong ones that can never be forgiven."
Do you struggle to read books about infidelity or do you do ok with that topic?
I received a complimentary copy of this
book from TLC Book Tours. I was not compensated for this review, and the
opinions are my own.
