Do we put too much emphasis on the outside, what we see? In doing so do we put unrealistic expectations on the person without really knowing the person? In doing so do we exacerbate the dehumanization of that person? These are the questions that come to mind as you read A BROKEN KIND of BEAUTIFUL by Katie Ganshert.
Ivy Clark is a young model about to turn 25, the age that may spell the end of her 10 year career. Starting at a young age she soon learned to turn off her emotions and put on a facade. Davis Knight was a fashion photographer who left New York and the industry do to the guilt he has assumed over his sisters accident.
Circumstances bring them together as they take on a photo shoot for a magazine and charity fashion show. Davis is a Christian and he sees through the public image Ivy portrays. He endeavors to demonstrate who God is and that He has more for her. Will he be successful? Will Ivy be able to believe God is a God of love and can forgive her?
Was a good read with much to think about. Would recommend it to the young women wishing to be models in particular.
I received this book free from Water Brook publishing free for an honest review.
