The Other Girl is a fourteen-chapter novel that tells the story of Jacinta, a young girl who grew up in a modest English family, who tried to convey to her from an early age the idea that a woman was destined for marriage and to look after the family. The premature death of her father, due to a heart attack, will be the spring that will push Jacinta to detach herself from values that did not belong to her, and to live free and independent.
However, the two men in her life, Will and Carl, whom she loved by giving them all of herself, will always make her the second choice, the other girl. In each chapter, Jacinta expresses her desire to be loved and her suffering in the face of a love that perhaps she should first have reserved for herself.
