What happens to the father of a 13-year-old son, when he discovers that he has been infertile all his life? That intriguing question is the starting point of A Father's Affair. On his quest to discover the biological father of his son, the protagonist, Armin Minderhout, takes the reader on an extraordinary journey, one in which he is forced to reconsider everything he has ever believed in. With the page-turning suspense of a 'whodunnit', A Father's Affair probes the eternal question of how well we know the ones we love.
Touching, at times extremely funny and erotically playful, it is a story of universal appeal - a stylish, acutely insightful and utterly captivating read.

This is a reader's novel. It is superbly written, engaging, and very informative. I enjoyed every second of it. The story touched my heart and I felt a reader's connection with the main character. There is so much more that I could say but I'd rather not babble. This book is worth way more than the money that I paid for it. It will stay with me for a long time.
