Between Friends

A novel by Kathleen Rowntree.

Tessa and Maddy are peacefully drinking coffee together, as they have many times before, when Maddy makes a chance comment that almost rips Tessa's world apart. She was pretty sure that her philandering husband Nick had recently embarked on a new affair; suddenly she realises that his current mistress must be Maddy herself.

The book follows Tessa as she decides what to do, weighs up her friendship and her marriage, and also deals with regular village life. Very moving with some humour and a satisfying ending. See 'A Tricky Triangle' for a longer review.
