Ladies, you will love Emily Giffin’s Heart of the Matter! It’s about a proverbial love triangle, yes, but it’s the first story (fictional and real-life) that I felt sympathetic toward both the wife and the “other woman” and couldn’t decide who I wanted Nick to be with. Tessa and Nick’s marriage is a solid one, based on love and respect, sealed with their two children, so, naturally, their family should stay intact. But Valerie’s long-awaited chance for happiness has finally arrived and you just want her to be happy—paradoxically, with Nick.
The novel is so thought-provoking and so well-written, I highly recommend it. I’d love to discuss it with someone and see their point of view.
