Book: Perfection, A Memoir of Betrayal and Renewal

Author: Julie Metz

Website: http://www.perfectionbook.com/index.html

Julie Metz had her Oprah moment, but she probably didn’t expect it would come about the way it unfolded.

Married and living the seemingly happy life, with an adorable six-year-old daughter in the suburbs, Julie’s life changed forever when her husband unexpectedly collapsed and died in their kitchen.

You’d think that’d be the worst the world would give you, right? Not for Julie. Months later, she discovered a betrayal that would have her question her whole marriage. Her husband had been leading a separate life and had been, in fact, having affairs with not one, but multiple women (at least five), and one of them being a very close friend of Julie’s.

Perfection is the story of how Julie overcomes the betrayal and rebuilds her life and identity after becoming a widow and finding out her husband had been an adulterer. It’s a moving memoir and Julie is a testament to all women who face any kind of adversity in their lives!

Read an excerpt here.

And here’s a wonderful video of Julie describing some moments in her life and also some FAQs you might be wondering about regarding her experience.

Nothing in life ever seems perfect, except maybe on occasion, like Sunday morning just staying in bed, or having an evening with friends full of laughter where for a moment you let go of the worries.

LizzybethDJ said...

So much in life isn't perfect and what appears perfect to one may be a nightmare for another. BUT these things, to me, are perfect - quiet Saturday mornings with a mug of tea, the smell of the ocean on a warm morning, laughing with true friends, hearing my cell phone ring and not only is it not work but a good friend or family, the smell of freshly baked cake, cupcakes or cookies. Another great way to start the day!

Melinda S. said...

Dinner with husband, petting my Golden Retriever, watching my 3 girls laugh together, the feeling after a long run and eating ice cream. All are my ideas of perfect!

Christine in NJ said...

Perfection... When all four kids are home, we have nowhere to go or "be", house is clean and the sun is shining... that's it!

Thank you for all the fun and all the book recommendations and reviews and blog intro's! You are the bestest!

Domesticated Gal said...

True perfection makes me itchy. I'd rather have unpainted nails going to an interview than look completely put together - its a jinx. Just begging for the universe to piss on ya.

But perfect moments? Usually involve my little man, when the big man is around to share in them. Voluntarily slipping his hand in mine to toddle off for a bedtime story. Spontaneous hugs. Mastering a new skill I've been working with him on for months.

Or just getting through dinner without spaghetti ending up on the BACK of his head.

Angie M P said...

Perfect to me is being home on a rainy day with nothing to do but watch movies all day long.

Colleen Turner said...

Perfection to me is being at your happiest and healthiest state that is possible for you. Everyone's perfection is different. The perfect day for me, for example, would be to be laying in the son with a frosty drink and good book while my son laughs and splashes in his pool and my husband hums and barbecues me a delicious meal!

Amanda Leigh said...

A lazy day when I can sleep, have nothing to do, can curl up with a book and do not have to leave the house is always absolutely perfect.

- Amanda Leigh

Karen said...

Hmm...what's perfect to me is when there is something that turns out better than I imagined. Sometimes I get so excited about something that there's no way it can meet my expectations...and then it does...and then some. It happens so infrequently that I really do appreciate it when it does. I have a lot of special moments...but rarely does it all come together in a way where I know that God has shown me tremendous favor in spite of the fact that I am such an imperfect creature. But they make life worth living...and are those pages in our lives that we turn down the corner to re-reference...or that we highlight and go back to again and again. All of life is special...but some things just defy explanation...and I'm very happy that they are there to balance out those what the? moments. :) ktmixon315

Perfection was my day yesterday...it was a perfect spring day, my 5yr old daughter got up without a fight, she had a great day at daycare, was wonderful when we got home, we had a great meal from the grill, she got ready for bed when asked (that is usually a fight), she read me her book, I read her a book and she went to bed peacefully. We had a great evening as a family! I wish I could bottle those days up because they seem to be few and far between. :)

Thanks again for this month+ long book give-away!

Wow, "perfect" is scary to me because I then think "fragile." Weird, right? I'm so much more content with "imperfect"... time with my family is what I would think of as perfectly imperfect. :)
Thanks, MM, for a great month of fun and good books!!

Emily said...

A lazy day of no obligations is my perfect day. I love it when I don't have to be anywhere at a certain time. I can just go from place to place at a whim!

Perfection: Feeling great (physically and emotionally) about yourself.

But, sitting on the beach with your toes in the water reading a book on a beautiful warm, sunny day is a close second! :)

Saturday mornings....
Everyone in jammies, kids playing, me drinking coffee, not rushing anywhere for anything.

Its perfect when there is a raging snowstorm going on but the whole family is safe & snug inside together with nowhere to go.

Kirsten said...

whoops, forgot to change my google log in from my PTO site. "Hubbardston" is me, Kirsten :-)

Bernadette said...

First day of the year it is warm enough to run the beach boardwalk without a jacket...perfect every year!

Dolly said...

I'm afraid perfection is out of reach; but I've learned that 'acceptable' is attainable, and much easier on the nerves! Being held to someone elses idea of 'perfection' nearly killed me years ago, and is making too many young girls sick.

Those little moments...you know you just are going through your day and you see your little boy walk over and hug his sister for no reason, your husband looks at you just right, contentment fills you up for those few moments and you smile and know it's all yours and you are the luckiest women alive :) perfect.

Perfection to me is a Sunday at home with my family with nothing to do. The house is clean, the laundry is done, the kitchen stocked, the windows are open with a nice spring breeze, everyone is happy, healthy, and getting along. With 3 teenage girls, this doesn't happen very often, but when it does it is perfection!

a sunny day out on the lake in the adirondacks, or a blue sky day of skiing on perfectly groomed trails. and sleeping in on sunday mornings.

There doesn't seem to be much in life that is perfect. For me, perfect is when my boyfriend and I are at a concert and a slow song comes on, he reaches out and holds my hand.

A day at home with the three kids happy and occupied in their own world so that my husband and I can spend time together. Since perfection never happens a few stolen moments will have to do.

DaphneSFL said...

Vacation, whether it be out of town or just staying home, long weekends, summer Sunday mornings reading my paper and having coffee in the yard. Spending time with friends and family, laughing and enjoying each other's company.

Erica said...

Perfection is pretty simple to me. A morning spent in bed with coffee and hubby. Petting the 2 cats and knowing my kids are happy, healthy and safe.

Thanks for all the info on the books.

Dulcibella said...

Perfection is a secluded beach - just walking along the shoreline or sitting and watching the waves breaking. With a brilliant blue sky overhead.

Ready To Be A Momma said...

There's not anything that I would consider perfect, but there are those moments in life that come completely out of the blue that end up being perfect. Playing with play-doh with my 3 year old goddaughter, snuggling my husband on the couch, laughing with amazing friends.

This past Sunday evening was perfect; dinner on the back porch with my husband (a dinner he cooked and cleaned up after:)).

lucy872 said...

It takes a long time and a lot of experiences to realize that life will never be perfect. But - for me a perfect moment is when the sun is shining, my daughter is having a good time and my husband and I are laughing and appreciating all that we have. We need to stop and not worry about anything else once in a while and realize how lucky we are. that's as close to perfect as we can get.

Margie said...

A sunny spring day....with daffodils and tulips...is perfect!

There are only moments of perfection.

Your little one snug in your arms, slepping or watching a movie.
Family hugs withthe husband and kids.
Sleeping in together on the weekend
A great night out with friends
Those moments when you manage to forget all the crazy crap going on (and or around) in your life.
Winning one or all of these books in thei amazing contest.

Can I get more of these days?

A warm fall day when the leaves begin to turn into brilliant colors and you have nothing else to do, but to take a walk through the woods.

A perfect day is great coffee in the morning, a few hours at the dog park and a quiet candle lit night at home.

Vacation with my husband. It doesn't matter where we go, how fancy the hotel or destination is, or if we are on a tight budget; it is always perfect.

jne said...

My idea of perfection involves time-traveling back to when I was eight and could spend the WHOLE weekend in my Nana's basement with my cousin/best friend and play make-believe. However, if I can't time travel, plop me on a float in the lake with a beer and sunglasses, and I'm good to go.

Homestead Jen said...

I think my grandmother's chocolate icing is absolutely perfect. Even though it turned out to be the recipe on the chocolate label, it is still the perfect topping to any cake (or spoon).

Lilianarenee said...

Perfection to me is having a day off with nothing planned and just being able to do whatever I want when I want to do it. I love waking up and decided a walk on the beach would be nice. Then deciding I want to see my God daughters and just relax on a blanket while they play together. Perfection is being surrounded by friends and family enjoying good food and great company. Its when my boyfriends two and a half year old gets on the phone and asks why I'm not there with them. Or how he cries when they drop me off or when I buckle him in and don't get in the front seat.

It's in the eye of the beholder.

Nothing in life is perfect. If it was, life would be pretty boring. There are perfect moments in time, like when you are laughing with great friends or spending quiet time with your child. I do my best to cherish these moments before they fade away.

My most perfect moment is in the morning when my 3 yr old son comes to my bed. He will tug on the covers until I wake up. As soon as I open my eyes, I see him standing there, with the sweetest smile on his face. Absolutely perfect.
