"A Broken Kind Of Beautiful" by Katie Ganshert is a very good novel about redemption. This has been one of the best novels I have read in the last few months. I was on the fence about picking this book to review but I am so glad I did. Our main character is a young woman name Ivy Clark a model . We find at the beginning Ivy at the funeral of her father and her stepmother Marilyn. She is a very bitter woman as we find out her dad had with his mistress. He did not love her and her mother was an addict that did care for her but like she needed to be. Ivy's step-mother Marilyn does love her unconditionally even though she is the product of her husband's affair which is why Ivy can't understand her love. Ivy's Uncle (her dad's brother)is also her agent and a very hard nosed one that picked Ivy as a model when she was a teenager. Now at the age of 25 she is at the end of her modeling career but does not want to end. She is sent to model wedding dresses for her step-mother Marilyn. While there she meets Davis Knight, who was very good fashion photography who gave it all up when well I am not going to give away that portion of the book. Anyway it does have a bit of romance in it but its mainly about Ivy's journey of being empty emotional and finding God's redemption after a tragedy that will stay with her for the rest of her life. This book was a beautiful story of God's redemption and the trials sometimes we have to go through to see love that is staring us right in the face. I highly recommend this book to anyone is a fan of reading about God's redemptive power.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group Blogging for Books for this review and was not required to give a positive review.
