Kate and Harry met at university, and while they claimed to have different motives, love conquered all. They got married, Kate had a lucrative job, and Harry’s laundry business boomed. Harry expanded his business, and all hell was let loose. He started cheating, but when naïve Kate found out, he turned the tables on her. She doubted her sanity, while he gaslighted her and carried on. Three babies and some years later, the actual war began. Both parents fought for the children’s loyalty, and Harry took the manipulation notches higher. Alienated from her children and being jobless, Kate will fight the biggest battle of her life–winning back her children’s love. Will her kids ever know the truth? Find out in A Pressing Affair by Eleanor Kelley.

A Pressing Affair by Eleanor Kelley is an interesting psychological drama that sheds light on the character of a chronic narcissist. Lies, manipulation, grief, and loss were the order of the day. Eleanor created a strong plot that featured forceful characters who adequately portrayed relatable scenarios. History repeats itself, or do I say fate? The dialogues flowed nicely, making the story easy to follow. I also felt Kate’s pain as she was so emotionally battered that even though she knew what to do, it took a while and a village. This story applies to real-life issues, hence, everyone needs to look out. The red flags in any relationship are visible from the beginning, so take them seriously. I enjoyed reading this educative book, and Eleanor did a great job.
