But everywhere else, life is a little harder for Cassie. Her mother believes in Bigfoot. Her wisecracking pet parrot is a drama queen. And at the age of 30, newly single and without a college degree, Cassie desperately needs a decent paycheck. Which is why, against all her principles, she lies on her résumé for an office job at an elite university - and then finds herself employed in academia by two professors who are as rare as the birds she covets.
One of her new bosses is Professor William Conner, a sexy, handsome, cheerfully aristocratic expert in animal behavior. Soon, under Conner's charismatic tutelage, Cassie carefully begins her personal transformation while meeting the kind of people who don't flock to wildlife preserves - from impossibly brilliant academics to adorably spoiled college boys. But her future - and unlikely new career - is teetering on one unbearable untruth. And Cassie's masquerade is about to come undone...in a chain of events that will transform her life - and the lives of those around her - forever.
A novel for late bloomers of every exotic shade and stripe, A Version of the Truth is pure entertainment - at once hilarious and wry, lyrical and uplifting.
