Selected by Indie Booksellers for the October 2011 Indie Next List
“Enright's new book is a beautifully written drama of passionate love and desire. In a suburb of Dublin, Gina Moynihan remembers first meeting the love of her life, a married man with a young daughter, and the ensuing story illustrates the complications of marriage, family, and friendships. The characters are richly described, and the story is both touching and real.”
-- Ellen Burns, Books on the Common, Ridgefield, CT


Description
A new, unapologetic kind of adultery novel narrated by Gina Moynihan, the sharp, sexy, darkly, funny thirtysomething IT worker that is the other woman. This story charts an extramarital affair from first encounter to arranged, settled, everyday domesticity.
