What if you’re doing everything right—living a healthy, virtuous, conscientious life— and something goes terribly wrong?

Gillian Deacon was the paragon of virtue, the standard-bearer for how to live responsibly on  the earth. So when the all-natural vegetarian yogi and runner mother of  three young boys was diagnosed with cancer, the world stopped making sense.

In an increasingly perilous environment, the promise of order amidst chaos is so tantalizing.  Every busy woman will recognize herself in Gill’s striving—if we just get through  our to-do list of achievements and improvements, we can get our lives under control …  can’t we? The illusion of perfection is a powerful motivator, propelling so many of us at  a breakneck pace toward somewhere other than where we are right now. But as  only a brush with death can teach us, Gill learns the folly of believing we are in control.  Readers will be inspired to appreciate the ragged imperfection of right now and learn to  find glimpses of gratitude in every moment of any day.

Naked Imperfection is an unforgettable personal story of courage and triumph.
