The more I read by Katie Ganshert, the more a fan I become. Ms. Ganshert's newest novel, A Broken Kind of Beautiful gives the reader a glimpse into the world of modeling and fashion photography. The reader will find themselves caring deeply for the characters residing in Greenbrier, South Carolina.
It is the story of fashion model, Ivy Clark and former Fashion Photographer turned church handyman, Davis Knight. Their story is a journey of their self-discovery out of their brokenness and into a new life of hope, love and forgiveness. There were times I wanted to reach out and shake them to get their attention, but then I had to remind myself it was only a story.
When Ivy's dreams are shattered she must learn to trust in God before she can move forward with her life. Watching her journey throughout the pages of this book were at times difficult and painful but the outcome was well worth the time spent. The character of Davis needs to learn to forgive himself and until he does, he will continue to blame himself for past mistakes.
I found A Broken Kind of Beautiful a story of broken dreams being restored into new dreams all by our wonderful Creator. There is a lesson to be learned in this book and I guarantee you that it is a lesson worth learning.
I would highly recommend A Broken Kind of Beautiful to anyone who enjoys a good clean read that shares a lesson within its pages.
On a 5-Star Scale = 4 1/2 Stars!!!!
