Description

The repercussions of an illicit affair unfold in this short story by bestselling author Taylor Jenkins Reid.

Dear stranger…

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.

Told entirely through the letters of two comforting strangers and those of two illicit lovers, Evidence of the Affair explores the complex nature of the heart. And ultimately, for one woman, how liberating it can be when it’s broken.

Absolutely helped me escape my afternoon!

I generally listen to true crime!! I know, So very different right?! But this little gem caught my eye and I was impressed for the first time I delved into a new category of listening...why not? Indeed I did and gave it a whirl! So I made myself a cup of hot tea, settled into my couch that afternoon and donned my headphones. I was immediately swept up in a real-life drama! As it unfolded, I couldn't believe where the time went...I was actually sad that it ended. I've now begun perusing the romance and steamy type novels to lose myself in, as they take you away for a few hours into a world I had never even delved into before. I'm hooked!

Lies can lead to finding yourself!

This short story was an interesting one.

I love how the author presented the story in letters.
If this were to happen in today’s world, texts would be sent, taking away from the gaps between communication.
The letters gave the two characters time to grieve and time to heal, all the while supporting one another.

The way the story unfolds turns two victims into victorious. Although the waiting game felt unsettling, it was exactly what needed to happen. Carrie found all the answers she was looking for and more importantly, she found herself.

I was so drawn into this story and had various ideas of how it would unfold.
Part of me was hoping for a different ending but the ending in this story is tasteful and solidifies the respect these two have for each other. They were drawn together for a reason and one that taught them a painful lesson can be exactly what you needed to change.

Great performance & satisfying premise/ structure

... albeit somewhat predictable. I'd hoped for a deeper, more psychological twist, a more unexpected outcome

Predictable

I'm a huge fan of Taylor Jenkins Reid so I was surprised by how disappointing this title was, and quite frankly, consider the purchase to be a waste of an Audible credit. The story was predictable and I was relieved that it ended quickly.

Has all the magic of the short story form

This epistolary short story begins when Carrie Allsop, a young married woman, reaches out and writes to David Mayer, the husband of the woman with whom her husband is having an affair. She’s discovered their betrayal after finding the letters sent by David’s wife, Janet.

I loved everything about this story! The magic of the short story form, when done well, is its ability to capture and convey the essence of the characters swiftly and deftly. It took me all of a minute to be drawn in and mesmerized by the story. It’s heartbreaking, humorous and triumphant. The less said the better other than to praise the writing and the narrators. Julia Whelan and George Newbern carry most of the story and they turned in their typically great performances. I am so glad I opted to listen to this one...double the pleasure.

AN INCREDIBLE EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE!

When I began listening to this story, I had no idea it would have ended the way it did. It was quite the journey, living the heart rending experience of realising that one's spouse was cheating on one. I felt the pain in each word shared. The author wrote as though she had lived it, or at least was close to people who had, and walked with them as they did. At times I felt like a voyeur into these people's lives... That's how great the writing is. Thank you, Taylor Jenkins Reid for sharing this story. Brilliant work!

easy read - starts slow but becomes addicting

The book is amazing. Ending is perfect. I sincerely hope that this would be transformed into a movie as it would be the first of its kind. 10/10

Recommended to my younger sister and older sister in law and they both loved it as well !!

What If...?

I love the premise of the story. A woman finds out her husband is having an affair; rather than confront him immediately, she gets in touch with the lady's husband and they start up a kind of pen-pal friendship, being a comfort to them both. After all, no one else in their lives knows just how it feels. I also like how the end of the story is kind of an "all's well that ends well" type of ending. People were still hurt; everyone still went through difficult things.

The only things that felt untrue about it was neither party confronting their cheating spouses. I'm not an aggressive person, but relationships are based on honesty, and I (and everyone I know) would not keep my knowledge of my spouse's affair a secret. They would be confronted, and decisions would be made. I know these relationships took place in a different time (the 70s) but human nature doesn't change. Anyway, I'm not sorry I spent nearly an hour and a half listening! The performance by all four was really great.

Sooo good, you'll wish it was longer!

Realistic, smart and engaging... kept my interest and I wish it was longer! Characters were real and you could imagine this story happening and I imagine, having happened at one time or another somewhere out there....

Highs and Lows

Inventive and clever. Pacing was even and logical. Great performance. But the characters were entirely irritating. Marriages are complicated but not one of the protagonists engendered any sympathy at all. Cheating on a spouse is never acceptable and glorifying that behavior in a “happy ending” short story does not get a bunch of stars in a review.

No, unless you truly don’t have anything else to do with an hour of your life.

Dry. Unbelievable. Boring.

Wow.. That short story took me by surprise.. Started off as I thought it would.. Predictable.. Then it did NOT go where I first thought it would have gone...Or my second thought.. Interesting stuff.. It's a good listen
