A Memoir Of Betrayal And Renewal
On Sale: June 9, 2009
Add to Wish List
Julie Metz's life changes forever on one ordinary January
afternoon when her husband, Henry, collapses on the
kitchen floor and dies in her arms. Suddenly, this mother
of a six-year-old is the young widow in a bucolic small
town. And this is only the beginning. Seven months after
Henry's death, just when Julie thinks she is emerging from
the worst of it, comes the rest of it: She discovers that
what had appeared to be the reality of her marriage was
but a half-truth. Henry had hidden another life from her.
"He loved you so much." That's what everyone keeps
telling her. It's true that he loved Julie and their
six-year-old daughter ebulliently and devotedly, but as she
starts to pick up the pieces and rebuild her life without
Henry in it, she learns that Henry had been unfaithful
throughout their twelve years of marriage. The most
damaging affair was ongoing--a tumultuous relationship
that ended only with Henry's death. For Julie, the only
thing to do was to get at the real truth--to strip away
the veneer of "perfection" that was her life and confront
each of the women beneath the veneer.
is the story of Julie Metz's journey through chaos and
transformation as she creates a different life for herself
and her young daughter. It is the story of coming to terms
with painful truths, of rebuilding both a life and an
identity after betrayal and widowhood. It is a story of
rebirth and happiness--if not perfection.

Hi. I won the July contest. My name is Lisa Alugaili from Romeo. I still have not recieved the copy of Perfection. I was looking for a way to contact you and this was the only way. I don't want to put my email address on here, I'm a member of fresh fiction, if you can get ahold of me that way and let me know if I really won or not.
