ï¿½You can tell a womanï¿½s whole life story from the
possessions in her jewelry box. Like reading a palm, you
can trace the points where her life has intersected with
memorable events, people, places, and loves. You can
speculate on the essence of her personality, all from what
she has accumulated in that box.ï¿½ï¿½from Perfectly Imperfect
In her acclaimed first book, In an Instant, Lee Woodruff,
along with her husband, ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff, wrote
eloquently and honestly about the struggles they faced
together as Bob recovered from a traumatic brain injury
sustained in Iraq. Now, with the same candor and clarity,
Lee Woodruff chronicles her life as wife, mother, daughter,
sister, and friend.
Woodruffï¿½s deeply personal and, at times, uproariously
funny stories highlight such universal topics as family,
marriage, friends, and how life never seems to go as
planned. On raising teenagers: ï¿½Now with a boy and girl on
the precipice of serious adolescence, the bathroom door is
sealed tighter than a government nuclear testing ground.ï¿½
On her changing body: ï¿½Over the last ten years my own knees
had begun to form those dreaded smiley faces, sagging
underneath.ï¿½ How she copes with tragedy: ï¿½Swimming
surrounds me in the velvet wet of a bluish green world
where I can dive deep down and sob with no trace.ï¿½ Even her
sense of style: ï¿½Iï¿½ve always been more Leave It to Beaver
than Sex in the City.ï¿½
In a voice that is fresh, irreverently funny, and
irresistible, Lee Woodruff traces the quiet moments and
memorable events that have shaped her life in progress.
Perfectly Imperfect is the testimonial of a woman who
embraces the chaos of her surroundings, discovers the
splendor of lifeï¿½s flaws, and accepts that perfection is as
impossible to achieve as a spotless kitchen floor.
