How often have you looked at someone you work with or seen some beautiful, well put-together stranger on the street and imagine that their life must be just-so-very-perfect? You’re a little envious, a lot jealous, and maybe a little bit snarky about how you describe them to your friends. And maybe this all comes on the heels of having just been dumped by a boyfriend or overlooked for that promotion at work so you’re especially sensitive when that beautiful, successful, ecstatically married picture of female perfection enters your life. In MORE LIKE HER, this is exactly what Frances Reid, our main character, encounters in Emma Dunham, the new headmistress where Frances teaches school.
But can you ever really know what goes on behind those perfect white picket fences? And sometimes the golden dream turns out to be not at all what it seems. Author Liza Palmer, the international bestselling author of Conversations with a Fat Girl, uses a deft hand to portray the unraveling of this façade. And when tragedy strikes, we are borne into the tide of its aftermath as secrets are revealed and dreams are exposed as lies. This surprising and insightful novel is on sale today!
