A Broken Kind of Beautiful

Also Available In
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 new photographer. Not only did he walk away from the kind of success Ivy longs for to work maintenance at a local church, he treats her differently than any man ever has. Somehow, Davis sees through the façade she works so hard to maintain. He, along with a cast of other characters, challenges everything Ivy 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?

Absolutely Brilliant
5 stars By Hannah, May 26 2015
Feeling as if she were a mistake from the moment she was born, Ivy learnt from an early age how to hold the broken pieces of her life together in a way that looks beautiful. Only, she feels far from it inside. And then along come some people who see her differently, and she has no idea what to do with them, or the self shes discovering herself to be.
From the first paragraph (which was so well described I was certain I was looking at a photograph), I was captivated  both by the incredible writingdescriptions and the characters and their struggles. 
Alongside its beautifully real story, this book has an incredibly powerful message  of love, hope, forgiveness, beauty, brokenness, worth It might have been just fiction but I doubt, having read it, Ill ever look at the world the same  or God. 
I absolutely loved this book, and would highly recommend it to likely anyone I meet! Cant wait to read it again.
