‘Past Imperfect’ by GD Harrison is a short story that focuses on the family relationships between social worker Colin and his mother and one of Colin’s patients Samuel, and his family Josie and Steve. This book is interesting from the start, as we are introduced from Samuel’s perspective, with more information gradually incorporated. I was interested to find out who the characters were and what was happening from the start and keen to read the story to the end. As this is a rather short book the characterisation happens quickly and easily, you immediately get to grips with the nuances of each character and their personal struggles while the main plot progresses. A tale of family secrets, strain and loss with a brilliant ending, this book can be read in a single sitting and I think would be enjoyed by people who like family drama and modern and contemporary fiction.
