Perfectly Imperfect is a deeply personal look at a well lived life in progress and the many roles played by a modern American wife, mother, daughter, and friend-it is the book you'll want to share with every woman you know.
"Lee delivers a collection of 17 brief, plainspoken essays about being a busy mother to four kids and a loving wife, daughter and friend who doesn't always know the right answers. . . . Self-deprecating and modest, Woodruff is certainly likable, and this collection will broaden her appeal."
"[a] winning and intimate look at the imperfections of family life."
"I want to snuggle up with a cup of tea and Lee Woodruff herself. Perfectly Imperfect is like having an old, dear friend who you haven't seen in awhile regale you with stories about life that you swear could be your own. This book will become my constant companion."
"Lee Woodruff is a modern day truth-teller. She is a laugh-out-loud funny, complex, contradictory, compassionate sister in the struggles and sweet successes of contemporary motherhood, sisterhood and wife-dom. An immediately relatable group of recollections and reflections on the often unfair, unexpected and unbelievably beautiful paths of a woman's life."
-Jamie Lee Curtis
"Nora Ephron + Erma Bombeck = Lee Woodruff. This is the book for all the women in your lives!"
-Liz Smith, syndicated columnist
"Reading Lee Woodruff's warm, joyful, heartfelt essays on everything from sagging knees to facing a child's disability is a little like staying up all night dishing with your best friend. You'll nod in agreement, laugh out loud, shed a few tears, and come away with a renewed appreciation for the magic of everyday moments, which Woodruff celebrates with her characteristic humor and grace in Perfectly Imperfect."
