About the Author

Jamie Raintree is voracious student of life, which is why she became a writer, where she could put all that acquired information to good use. She is a mother of two, a wife, a businesswoman, a nature-lover, and a wannabe yogi. She also teaches writers about business and productivity. Since the setting is always an important part of her books, she is happy to call the Rocky Mountains of Northern Colorado her home and inspiration.


"An engrossing Portland-based puzzle about family secrets, the delicate nature of relationships, and the haunting guilt a woman feels over her sister's death, this is the most sensational, emotionally raw, and satisfying debut of the fall." -Redbook Magazine (20 Books by Women You Have to Read This Fall)

"Debuting author Raintree has crafted a novel packed with rich, lyrical language, heartbreaking secrets, and enticing characters, a family drama appealing to lovers of women's fiction." -Booklist

"Many women have walked the line between career and love, family and self. Raintree handles the balance with grace and wisdom. Her writing is clear and crisp, the emotion raw and without melodrama. From family secrets to heartbreaking lost love, the characters felt like old friends by the end. Highly recommended." -Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author

"Smoothly written with palpable emotion, Jamie Raintree's debut, Perfectly Undone, is a thought-provoking tale where one woman must come to terms with the secrets, expectations, and choices that will shape her life. Raintree is a fresh new voice not to be missed." -Laura Spinella, bestselling author of Ghosts Gifts and Unstrung

With a kind touch, Raintree taps into our deepest fears, yet in the end left me full of hope." -Amy Sue Nathan, author of The Glass Wives and The Good Neighbor

"One lush word at a time, Jamie Raintree draws us deep inside the protections of a broken heart, giving fresh perspective to the thin lines between caring and nurturing, ambition and distraction, the flash of desire and the permanence of love. These characters will live on within me. A must-read." -Kathryn Craft, author of The Art of Falling and The Far End of Happy

"Perfectly Undone is a wise and thoughtful novel about the ways the people who love us can hurt us, and the journey to forgiveness both for others and for ourselves." -Bethany Chase, bestselling author of Results May Vary and The One That Got Away

"At once a cautionary tale about the ways in which we try to hide from grief, and a love story about family and the healing power of forgiveness, Perfectly Undone is an emotionally complex tale of unresolved grief and the secrets we keep, both from those who love us and from ourselves." -Lorrie Thomson, author of What's Left Behind and Equilibrium
