Critical Praise

"Eileen Goudge, author of Woman in Red, has written a beautiful and heart-wrenching story of the love and closeness two women share as teens only to be destroyed. Now they share a need to take solace in each other and restore their once-close relationship. This story will reach into your soul and place you into the characters' thoughts. Highly recommended reading!"


"Eileen Goudge deftly weaves multiple storylines into a seamless page-turner propelled by juicy secrets, skeletons in the closet, stunning betrayals and heart-wrenching reunions. If you're feeling nostalgic for a good, old-fashioned sprawling saga, Domestic Affairs is your book.”"

Wendy Corsi Staub, New York Times bestselling author of Dying Breath

"When you open this book, don't bother putting anything else on your schedule, because you won't want to stop reading for anything. This is the ultimate indulgence--dramatic, involving, and ringing with emotional truth. Eileen Goudge spins a cautionary tale with a fairy tale ending about the price of ambition, the meaning of loyalty and the redeeming power of love. This is a top-drawer author at the top of her game.""

Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author of The Winter Lodge

"Honestly, from the first page, I was hooked. The novel is a big, juicy, emotional saga that grabs you from the start and doesn't let go….a sweeping, emotional story that will mesmerize you from start to finish… Eileen Goudge has truly written her best novel to date with Domestic Affairs."
