Publisher's Summary

Two adoring spouses, Roger and Margaret, lose the loves of their lives and a routine that made them fond and content. They become baffled and find chaos learning to live without the other. Margaret escapes memories by traveling, and Roger keeps the candle lit, recreating memories to last the rest of his lifetime for his daughter, grandchildren, and himself. Margaret is led to Roger after finding typed letters to his beloved with questions, missing her and trying to heal. Both Roger and Margaret bond in understanding and empathy; they develop an enduring friendship as two people searching for life and doing the best they can in their remaining years.

The Perfect Kind of Imperfect reaches your heart. You bond with Roger and Margaret as they relive what they had, meet, and reach out to each other. We get to know and love their families, and we get to know and love them. Jackie Adams has a way of writing that touches you deeply and keeps you enchanted. You close...with a tear, and you want to hear more. We hope to meet this author again soon.” (Daniel R. Mandelker, Stamper Professor of Law, Washington University in St. Louis)

The Perfect Kind of Imperfect

It is never easy, loosing a spouse after being together for decades. Both Roger and Margaret are facing that exact situation. The is a sweet story about the friendship that they forge as they both try to move on.

Both the author, Jackie Adams, and the narrator, Daniel Mandelker, did a lovely job with this presentation. An enjoyable listen.

Long Marriages, Loss, Companionship and Friendship

A man who recently lost his wife on many years and a woman who lost her husband a few years ago both visit the cemetery regularly to visit their spouses graves.
Though they have family and friends, none know their feelings, having lived through a spouses decline and death, and the companionship years together are lost.
Having been married since I was 19 to the same man and living many years raising a family and the changes in the decades, I can understand how not really wanting another relationship, but needing companionship. I’ve seen many such relationships. The idea that your children or grandchildren can fill the same gap the death lives just doesn’t happen.
A very realistic story that all ages could learn from..and done by a narrator who sounds correct for the age and tells the story in a believable way.

A Sweet & Heartfelt Story & Audible Listen🎧

This is an enjoyable short story, it is original, well written and well told. The realistic storylines are interesting and relatable. A loving couple grows old together, it is never easy for the one left behind after one passes. Getting past the loss, sorrow and heartache is a challenge as well as trying to live a life without your loved one. Support from your family is helpful and making a new friend is as well. I love how Roger and Margaret meet and how they get to know each other. I highly recommend this story for the young and the old. Thank you for this great story! Sometimes life is Perfectly Imperfect!

I listened to the Audible edition, Daniel Mandelker does a nice job narrating and telling the story. He brings the characters and their story to life from the pages to your ears. Thank you for an entertaining listen🎧
