The other woman book eric jerome dickey
The Other Woman by Eric Jerome Dickey, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®Chapter One I shouldn't have been surprised when I met my husband's lover, but I was. This is the face of the woman in the mirror, the wholesome face of a woman who has been married for four years: I have brown skin and cinnamon freckles that come alive in the sun, delicate freckles that all of my former lovers loved to play connect the dots with, or pretend that my face was the sky and the freckles were the stars and find as many constellations as they could. I'm in my early thirties, but on a good day, with the right makeup and the right clothes, I can pass for early twenties. Men in their twenties are the ones who ignore the ring and flirt with me the most. I think it's the locks. Ever since I lost the perm, people say I look younger. This is the life of the woman in the mirror, the life of a woman balancing her marriage and career as a news producer: I drive an hour and fifteen minutes in traffic every day-and that's in one direction-to the 10 westbound so I can drive La Brea into the edges of Hollywood, trying to get to a job that stresses me out to the nth degree.

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.
