I need to find more epistolary books out there. I’m craving them.
Evidence of the Affair
Taylor Jenkins Reid
Short Story, Romance, Fiction
A desperate young woman in Southern California sits down to write a letter to a man she’s never met—a choice that will forever change both their lives.
My heart goes out to you, David. Even though I do not know you…
The correspondence between Carrie Allsop and David Mayer reveals, piece by piece, the painful details of a devastating affair between their spouses. With each commiserating scratch of the pen, they confess their fears and bare their souls. They share the bewilderment over how things went so wrong and come to wonder where to go from here.
Told entirely through the letters of two comforting strangers and those of two illicit lovers, Evidence of the Affair explores the complex nature of the heart. And ultimately, for one woman, how liberating it can be when it’s broken.

I like epistolary novels, so this entire story being told in letters was enjoyable. It was a good choice. I like the premise, the idea of sending such a potent letter to a complete stranger & growing closer as you’re swept in a storm together.
The plot was a little cliche… I didn’t like how quickly I predicted the ending.
I felt the letters between Janet & Ken lacked in originality. Their romance felt too generic & their characters weren’t explored fully. I was hoping for a little more.
