“The End of the Affair” was written by Graham Greene. The book is based off an affair the author had, and the book is even dedicated to the mistress. It’s made out to “C” in Britain, but to “Catherine” in the United States. The character of Sarah is based off of this Catherine, and the story follows Sarah and Bendrix through an affair.
She refuses to leave her husband for Bendrix, even though he pushes her to do so. The affair began quickly, and he begins to realize that the affair will end as quickly as it began. However, fate intervenes, and the two are almost killed. From there, the book quickly takes a dark turn. Bendrix almost dies in that explosion, and well, Sarah has plans of her own.
