Not Perfect, by Elizabeth LaBan, centres around a mother's fall from grace. The synopsis says: "Tabitha Brewer wakes up one morning to find her husband gone, leaving her no way to support herself and their two children, never mind their upscale Philadelphia lifestyle. She'd confess her situation to her friends - if it wasn't for those dreadful words of warning in his goodbye note: 'I'll tell them what you did.'
Instead, she does her best to keep up appearances, even as months pass and she can barely put food on the table - much less replace a light bulb. While she looks for a job, she lives in fear that someone will see her stuffing toilet paper into her handbag or pinching basil from a neighbour's window box.
Soon, blindsided by catastrophe, surprised by romance, and stunned by the kindness of a stranger, Tabitha realises she can't keep her secrets forever. Sooner or later, someone is bound to figure out that her life is far from perfect." Not Perfect is out in February 2018.
