Book Review: A Broken Kind of Beautiful

Book by Kaite Ganshert
A Broken Kind of Beautiful
By Kaite Ganshert

Sometimes everything you ever learned about yourself is wrong. 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.

If only her tenuous future didn't rest in the hands of Davis Knight her mysterious photographer. Not only did he walk way from the kind of success Ivy longs for to work maintenance at a local church he treats her differently than than any man ever has. Somehow Davis sees through the facade she works so hard to maintain. In fact it seems that everyone Ivy comes across in Greenbrier challenges what she has come to believe about beauty and worth. Is it possible that God sees her - a woman stained and broken by the world - yet wants her still?

Christy Award finalist and Carol winner Katie Ganshert is the author of Wildflowers from Winter and Wishing on Willows. She lives in Iowa with her husband and their son. When she's not busy writing or playing or reading or snuggling she is obsessing over the paperwork and waiting that comes with adoption.

I'm going to start out by saying sorry for the bad book picture, I'm not sure exactly what I was doing. About the book though, I have to say I like it a lot. With my blogging which even though I take pictures in clothes is very different then modeling although some people don't believe that, I can relate to Ivy Clark. I love how Kaite Ganshert really showed the setting and built all of the characters into a book that I enjoyed reading. There weren't any spots that I wanted to just get through and unlike a mystery book like The Devil Walks in Mattingly I wasn't trying to rush through it. A Broken Kind of Beautiful is a go at your own leisure and enjoy kind of work. If you liked Undeniably Yours By Becky Wade or Splitting Harriet this is a book you should check out.
