This book tells the story of Aviva Grossman, who as a young intern, had an affair with the congressman for whom she worked. The affair became somewhat of a scandal, once it was revealed. the congressman, a respectable man in his mid 40s, got out of the affair unscathed. Aviva's future, however, was damaged by the scandal, her reputation forever shattered and tainted.
The story, for the most part, takes place 15 years later (with flashbacks to the past). What I've found interesting about the story, is that its told only through the voices of the women in the story. I enjoyed reading this book so much, that it was actually sad for me to get to the last page.
