My Neighbour by Marlyn Cooper

I should not have told my neighbour that I saw her husband having a meal in a restaurant with another woman.

As it turned out, this was a sister he did not know he had, as she had been adopted as a baby. He felt it would be better if they met for the first time on their own.

My neighbour has not spoken to me since then, and have put their house up for sale.
