A Broken Kind of Beautiful

by Katie Ganshert

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.




This is an awesome book, and I just loved, loved it!!!  For ten years Ivy Clark has been modeling fashions, and outside beauty is all she knows or cares about. Then Ivy meets Davis and Ivy begins to see that outside beauty is not the really important kind of beauty.

A Broken Kind of Beautiful was sometimes difficult for me to read, because it is full of heartache and difficulties because of what the characters are going through. But author Katie Ganshert does the most fantastic job of showing the love and redemption of God’s grace into the lives of her characters. This is a book that anyone would not only love, but your life will change when you follow the lives of these wonderful characters. I hope you love this as much as I did!

I received this book from Blogging for Books to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
