    A beautiful story of redemption!

    A Broken Kind of Beautiful is a compelling, heart-breaking story of God's loving redemption, even towards those who believe they are beyond repair. Ivy Clark lives and breathes fashion. Having been in the model industry since she was fourteen, the twenty-four year old knows her time is drawing to a close. After ruining her chance for a contract extension, Ivy's agent exiles her to Greenbrier, South Carolina and the only job offer she has, modeling wedding dresses for her stepmother's bridal boutique Something New. Sadly, Ivy is anything but a pure bride, dealing in the seduction of men and coping with the truth that she is the illegitimate daughter of a man that never loved her. A beautiful face admired by the world. But, one that nobody takes the time to look past and see the real Ivy Clark. The Ivy hurting and broken, desperate for unconditional love that looks past her beautiful shell to the wounded child beneath. While in Greenbrier, Ivy meets her enigmatic photographer Davis Knight. A man who captures the truth with his camera and sees past her beauty to the brokenness she tries to hide. Although possessing the talent to make it in New York, Davis relinquished those dreams and his camera two years ago. Since then, he has worked maintenance repair at a local church and taken care of his recently blinded sister Sara. Davis only reignites his passion and picks up his camera to photograph his Aunt Marilyn's model for Something New, after learning the proceeds will bring the new art program for blind students Sara has been dreaming about to the community college. But, will he be able to lock his camera and desire back up after the campaign? And what about Ivy? While Davis would love to be her knight in shining armor, can he, Sara, and Marilyn, the barren widow who has loved her husband's daughter as if she were own, show Ivy that God loves her? That God cares about Ivy Clark. That God wants her- broken and all. Because He redeems the desperate and broken leaving a broken kind of beautiful. A Broken Kind of Beautiful touched me in so many ways. Being from the South, I enjoyed the Southern setting complete with old plantations, oak trees, crabbing, and sweet tea. The language appeared poetic at times with its rhythm and beauty. Likewise, the plot was well-developed with a moderate pace and a surprising twist at the end. The characters were lovable and realistic, so much so that my heart broke repeatedly for Ivy and the pain that consumed her. Although Ivy was the main character, my favorite character was her stepmother Marilyn due to her unwavering faith in God and her unexplainable love for Ivy, even when both caused her pain. I cried several times near the end of the book, tears of sorrow and joy. The book abounds with broken people in need of healing. The photographer with a hidden past, the woman with no children of her own, and the beautiful model who believes no one truly loves her. Through all of this, the healing power of God's love shines as a reminder that He is strong enough to heal the hurt and gentle enough to relentlessly pursue and redeem the broken. In the end, the book is not about Ivy, Davis, or Marilyn. The story is about God's loving redemption- which can only be described as beautiful.
