Review of "A Broken Kind of Beautiful" by Katie Ganshert

So. I really didn't want to keep reading this book, because if I kept reading, that meant I would finish it at some point. I just didn't want it to be over.

Model Ivy Clark is just 24 years old but feels like she's lived enough for many lifetimes. She has been lauded - and now marginalized - by the fashion industry, so when her recently deceased father's widow Marilyn invites her to be the new face of her bridal wear for a photo shoot, she reluctantly agrees.

Although Ivy is the "result" of her husband James' infidelity, Marilyn loves her deeply, and would do just about anything to be a part of her life. The other main characters include Davis Knight, Marilyn's nephew and a mystery to Ivy, as he learns to truly see her; and Sara Knight, his sister.

As an aside, the blurb on the back of this book is one of the most interesting I've ever read. You will see it and be intrigued - and you will absolutely love this book. The characters are rich and layered and interesting; the setting she describes I want to visit; the journey all of our characters take to arrive to a new understanding of themselves and God, beautiful. Many thanks to Katie Ganshert for a moving and gorgeously written book. And thank you for the epilogue, too :)

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.
