Mistresses: A History of Other Women - Elizabeth Abbott Mistresses is an exploration of what the women in longterm relationships with men who aren't married to them have been like, and for the most part it sucks. Not the book, the relationships:) I found Mistresses to be very readable. A helpful thing considering it's innately depressing topic. I left this book being more grateful then ever before that I never went down that path. Despite being interesting two things really bothered me. The first was that I felt that some of the data was being presented as solid facts when it really wasn't that concrete. The other was Abbott's intensive moralizing. It wasn't too bad in the historical segments but when it comes to the modern day versions it was intense. And really, was every wife who resented her mistress counterpart at fault for the demise of her marriage and the reason her husband just had to stray?
