The reigning queen of the beach read is back this summer with a new book-Tiny Little Thing. I find myself with overlapping themes in recent books I have read. The Balance Project, and this book both include themes of the struggle for perfection. No matter the time period, many women feel compelled to uphold a false image of perfection. In this day and age, it comes in the form of social media and the unavoidable social web. In the past it was photographs, physical evidence of betrayals and secrets that are kept at close bay. The perfect life is an image, a mirage of something that is unattainable. When Tiny is confronted with the reality that her marriage and her life may not be as perfect as she maintains, her life threatens to unravel.
