Coming Clean is a darkly complex, wildly funny story of haves vs. have-nots and healed vs. healed-nots as cleaning lady Dawn and her friend Matthew embark on a week-long, clandestine photography project--in the houses she cleans
Dawn, a self-employed cleaning lady in upstate New York, agrees to pose in the houses she cleans for her friend Matthew's provocative photography project. Over the course of one week, she and Matthew scour the contents of each home to find inspiration but what she uncovers instead is an unexpected connection to the people who live there: from the insecure Bridget Riley, and the recent immigrant Wei Chen, to the pretentious Robert McIntyre. But it's the troubled housewife, Barb Turner, and the contents of her life that finally force Dawn to confront her darkest secret about the death of her fiancé. Coming Clean is a novel of forgiveness, family, and fresh starts.
