The book a private affair is about four different persons, with very different personalities and stories. Sam Morland has everything. She is pretty, she has a great career, two homes and more money than she could ever ask for. She's single and is to busy to find a guy. Abby Barclay is the perfect army wife, and is used to put her husband before everything else. Meaghan Astor is also an army wife, but she does not have the same background as Abby. She has taken a chance on an young army officer, and follows him around the world to get away from the farm where she grew up. Dani Stemo is a survivor. She grew up in war-torn Sierra Leone, and is used to seeing soldiers everywhere.
But even though they are so different, they have one thing in common. A man.
The book gives you an insight into the British army. It's not a normal love story, but instead an insight into the lives of army wives and the effect loneliness can have on people.
In the beginning the book was a bit difficult to read. The stories was jumping back and fourth, and i didn't really understand what the girls had in common, and why had wrote the things that they had written. But as i read more, it started enjoying it. The author has done a good job in keeping the reader interested. You want to know what happens next, so you can't stop reading.
