YOU'D DO ANYTHING FOR YOUR FRIENDS. BUT WOULD YOU TELL THEM THE TRUTH? 'Love this book' Elisabeth Moss, star of The Handmaid's Tale 'Rare and complex' Marian Keyes 'A dark, delicious thriller. I loved it.' Louise O'Neill, author of Only Ever Yours 'Immersive and unsettling.' Sarah Vaughn, author of Anatomy of a Scandal 'I read this in no time. An excellent twist.' Dorothy Koomson, author of The Ice Cream Girls 'Beautifully written ... should not be missed' Samantha Downing, author of My Lovely Wife 'Immersive, intelligent and gripping' S.E. Lynes, author of Mother Nancy, Eleanor and Mary met at college and have been friends ever since, through marriages, children and love affairs. Eleanor is calm and driven, with a deep sense of responsibility, a brilliant career and a love of being single and free - despite her soft spot for her best friend's husband. Mary is deeply intelligent with a love of learning, derailed by three children and a mean, demanding husband - she is now unrecognisable to herself and her friends. Nancy is seemingly perfect: bright, beautiful and rich with an adoring husband and daughter - but beneath the surface her discontent is going to affect them all in terrible ways. When Nancy is murdered, Eleanor and Mary must align themselves to uncover her killer. And as each of their stories unfold, they realise that there are many different truths to find, and many different ways to bring justice for those we love... Everyone wants a perfect life. But there is no such thing...

Reviews for Imperfect Women

Imperfect Women is a painfully honest, haunting portrait of friendship, betrayal, marriage and disappointment. While Hall is able to keep you on the edge of your seat (and awake much later than you should be) she can also make you weep, such is her insight and lack of judgement of the human condition. A beautiful book that will stay with me for a very long time. * Dolly Wells * A brilliant exploration of the secrets and hidden lives womn create for themselves as they try to navigate their way through life. The friendships are real and touching, the relationships are consuming and passionate. I read this in no time and really enjoyed the pace, flow and insights Araminta writes about. A fabulous novel of modern love, life and people, with an excellent twist. * Dorothy Koomson * A psychological thriller in the truest sense of the word: a thoughtful examination of the psyche of three credible women with baggage and flaws. So much will resonate: not least Hall's exploration of gender politics and motherhood. At points I was folding pages repeatedly. Deeply unsettling. Recommended. * Sarah Vaughn *
