Georgie and Peter, very much in love, move to London with their three children. Once there, Georgie's dormant acting career takes off and she wins the role of Dora Jordan in a one-woman show. Dora Jordan was the most famous comic actress of the 18th century (she had 13 illegitimate children, including 10 by the future king of England). As Georgie rehearses for her part, she becomes increasingly drawn to Dora Jordan, whom she sees as a working mother with struggles exactly like her own. And when Georgie can no longer fight her attraction to the playwright, she begins an affair with tragic results.

Narrated by Peter, a failed writer turned-businessman, My Wife's Affair is about infidelity, passion, duty, and about finally getting what you want and then wanting still more.

    " The affair itself felt like the plot device that it was, and the narrative as well as the ending seemed melodramatic at times. I'm really unsure of the necessity of having Peter narrate the story when he was so rarely directly involved with what was going on. Even so, I liked Georgie and her family, I liked reading about the play, and I enjoyed the book in general. "

    " This book is told from the husband's point of view with a lot of foreshadowing. The book details a historical character which makes it more interesting. The book grabbed me from page 1. It is an ending that you will not forget. "
