A BROKEN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL
Fashion is a fickle industry, a frightening fact for twenty-four-year-old model Ivy Clark. Ten years in and she's learned a sacred truth -- appearance is everything. Nobody cares about her broken past as long as she looks beautiful for the camera. This is the only life Ivy knows -- so when it starts to unravel, she'll do anything to hold on. Even if that means moving to the quaint island town of Greenbrier, South Carolina, to be the new face of her stepmother's bridal wear line -- an irony too rich for words, since Ivy is far from the pure bride in white.
I really like Katie Ganshert's books, this is her third and each is better than than the last. Very well written with intriguing characters (each have a story) and a great setting. The effects modeling has on young girls is saddening and the dejection as they age can be devastating.
A heartwarming story yet kind of heartbreaking at the same time. Ganshert shows how God's love can change a person. Loved this book and the beautiful cover!
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
