“One of my toughest novels to write so far, The Affair is about fifteen year old Scarlett’s first relationship. She describes it as a love affair, her mum, Nina calls it abuse.”
A shocking story about a fifteen year-old girl and the man who took advantage of her.
“You might as well know from the start, I’m not going to tell on him and I don’t care how much trouble I get in. It’s not like it could get any worse than it already is. I can’t. Don’t ask me why, I just can’t.”
When Nina finds out that her fifteen-year-old daughter, Scarlett, is pregnant, her world falls apart.
Because Scarlet won’t tell anyone who the father is. And Nina is scared that the answer will destroy everything.
As the suspects mount – from Scarlett’s teacher to Nina’s new husband of less than a year – Nina searches for the truth: no matter what the cost.
