When I received Julie Metz's "Perfection" I could not wait to start reading it, anticipating a great memoir from the description I read online.
I was not at all disappointed.
From the very beginning I was drawn to Julie and the challenges she faced as she learned of her husbands other life after his untimely death.
From debt to the staggering news of his extramarital affairs, Julie learned that what she had built with the love of her life was a nothing but a lie.
Sorting through the remains of her life and raising her young daughter left her physically and emotionally drained, yet she managed to make a few life changing decisions of her own. She took what she was left and made the best of it. I found myself rooting for her as she changed her life for the better.
It was a heart-breaking but triumphant tale that I would highly recommend to any reader.
I give Julie Metz and her wonderful memoir "Perfection" 5 stars.
