In his newest novel, Eric Jerome Dickey strides boldly over the minefield that is modern marriage. The central couple’s biggest challenge is timing: He works days; she works nights. Instead of growing together, they’re rapidly drifting apart, coexisting on stolen phone calls from work, punctuated by occasional bedroom encounters that leave them both feeling even emptier and more alone. When she finds out about his affair-and starts her own-the delicate fabric of their marriage is torn irrevocably asunder. Or is it? In Dickey’s expert hands, what begins as a seemingly unforgivable betrayal segues into the sexy and searing story of a man and a woman at a pivotal turning point in their relationship. Only time will tell whether they’ll let it all go…or can hold on to the love that drew them together in the first place.
Dickey’s eighth blockbuster novel sparkles with humor, honesty, and powerful compassion as a contemporary couple faces the challenges that test their trust, their faith, and their staying power. Poignant and passionate, The Other Woman is certain to resonate with readers of all marital persuasions.
