Perfectly Imperfect - Lee Woodruff

Lee Woodruff is a bestselling author and lifestyle television presenter. Perfectly Imperfect (2009) is a collection of essays written by Woodruff about her home life: being a daughter, a wife, a mother, a friend. Her themes range from jewellery, kids' sports, being the mother of a deaf child and protecting your marriage by using GPS. Everyday stuff, but with honesty, humour, and, at times, raw emotion. In his foreword, Lee's husband Bob Woodruff says that she writes as she speaks; her warmth and humanity are certainly evident in the tales she tells as she welcomes us into her home.

This is an easy, enjoyable read, perfect for the afternoons when I can hang up my hammock and indulge in reading in the sun.

This book sounds really interesting. I'm compiling a list of books that I want to read this year, I'll add this one.

Nice - I must look for it. I need a new selection of light books for interspersing with the heavier reads!
