A Woman’s Guide To Adultery

A Woman's Guide To Adultery

Rose disapproves of adultery. Her three closest friends are all entangled with married men and she can see that it is always the women who suffer most. Rose would never hurt another woman for the sake of a man. But when she meets Paul, the sexual attraction is too strong to resist and suddenly Rose finds that she has become a mistress with a guilty conscience. Sex in the afternoons, secret meetings in quiet bars, waiting by the phone, wishing his wife would let him go; Rose has succumbed to adultery.
