One Good Affair (Paperback)

Special Order


With her gift for "surprising emotional honesty... and] an impressive ability to get inside the heads of her characters],"* Tess Stimson grips readers with this internationally bestselling novel of six lovers, two marriages, one affair--and what happens when a lifetime of secrets begins to unravel.
Ella Stuart is a pediatrician with a fulfilling career and a marriage any woman would envy. William Ashfield is a devoted husband, a good father, and a successful businessman. Beth Ashfield married the love of her life and loves him still, but the light inside her is going out and she has one last chance to rekindle it. And Cate, Beth and William's brilliant but troubled teenage daughter, is trying to negotiate the rough waters between adolescence and womanhood. But when tragedy strikes, the repercussions spiral through all of their lives--and in an instant, nothing will ever be the same. Now Ella, William, Beth, and Cate will discover that trying to have it all might be keeping them from the very thing they each want most....
With sharp wit and moving honesty, Tess Stimson has written a brazenly unsentimental yet deeply felt novel of hearts gone astray that somehow keep the faith--even when everyone seems to be cheating.
