A Broken Kind of Beautiful

A Broken Kind of Beautiful, the latest novel by Katie Ganshert, is a must-read book for anyone who enjoys a great comeback storyline!

The book starts out rather slowly as you are introduced to Ivy Clark and learn the sad details of her start in life.  Following the rejection of her natural father, Ivy is pulled into the world of high fashion where she begins working as a model at the age of fourteen!

After years of working successfully as a model, Ivy is twenty-five years old and there are no jobs on the horizon!  When she returns to the hometown of her father, she is forced to deal with many pains from her past.  She has no idea that God has new plans for her right around the corner!

About half-way through, the pace of this book picks up quite a bit.  Ivy begins to build a friendship with Davis Knight, a photographer who has run away from his life in New York.  You will be surprised by the dark places God leads both Ivy and Davis.  In the end, they will both learn anew about the unfailing love of our God!

I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my unbiased review
