WASHINGTON -- The trial of John Edwards is over, but the public soon will learn more details about his career-ending affair with Rielle Hunter.
Edwards' former mistress has written a tell-all memoir, to be released June 26.
The book, "What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter, and Me," details Hunter's affair with the former presidential candidate during the 2008 contest that led to an out-of-wedlock birth, campaign finance fraud charges and a high-profile trial.
"The book is a memoir about Ms. Hunter's life, her relationship with John Edwards and their daughter," Hunter's spokeswoman, RoseMarie Terenzio, said Saturday. Hunter had no further comment, Terenzio said.
The book is being released by BenBella Books, said Jennifer Canzoneri, a spokeswoman for the boutique publisher.
The book's release was first reported by People magazine. "A lot has been said. But no one has heard the truth of what really happened until now," Glenn Yeffeth, publisher of BenBella Books, told the magazine.
