review: a small indiscretion by jan ellison

A Small Indiscretion is written as a letter to the narrator’s son, who has been in a terrible car accident. As one guesses, Annie is not quite sure who the father of her now adult son is. The father could be the man she married who raised the boy along with the two other children they had, he could be Annie’s married boss, or he could be the lodger her married boss had who also happened to have an affair with the boss’s wife. Yeah, it’s kind of complicated, but Annie has long since moved on from those days in London. A photograph in the mail brings it all back though and her son’s car accident prompts Annie to share the story. Although the letter-style narrative allowed Annie to share details that otherwise wouldn’t have been easily incorporated, it also lacked emotion and action.
3/5
