Lee Woodruff Perfectly Imperfect

514Oh0xmSoL._SL160_   Whether pretending to like that tacky (if well-intentioned) gift from her husband or being stuck with a 5:00am dog walk (even though her kids promised they’d do it) Lee Woodruff is the first to tell you that her life is far from perfect in her book,  Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress(Random House Trade Paperback, on sale 4/6). Woodruff’s 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. From raising teenagers to how she copes with tragedy, Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress is the testimonial of a woman who embraces the chaos of her surroundings, discovers the splendor in life’s flaws, and accepts that perfection is as impossible to achieve as a spotless kitchen floor.

Among other topics,  Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progresscovers:

  • What not to wear when meeting the President of the United States
  • The latest information and status of what our government and private organizations are doing to help the injured veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with TBI
  • The lessons Lee has learned through tragedy and recovery--her own and the stories of others--and her list of 10 very honest tips to consider if someone you know is facing a life-changing trauma
  • How her favorite Lanz nightgown at long last met its demise
  • Confessions of a non-sports Mom
  • Helping to care for her elderly parents
  • Coming to terms with her daughter’s hearing-impairment
