{Book Review} A Different Kind of Beautiful by Katie Ganshert

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 fa├žade 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?

Review:
I found this book interesting as well as appealing. I was drawn into the life of the model because I too for along time felt that my life was broken and unraveling until I met my source of help. The story is about a model whose life has been "broken" and is unraveling and a photographer who has been following the life of the model since she was 12. They renew their relationship at the funeral of IVY's(the model) father.

Their lives begin to intertwine in a small town of Greenbrier, South Carolina where IVY becomes a model for her stepmother's bridal wear line and Davis Knight(the photographer) is working at a local church. Davis sees something in IVY that no one else sees and in return IVY comes to see beauty and worth in a different light. I loved this book from beginning to end. It was filled with spiritual uplifting help.

I would recommend this book for anyone that feels that their life is broken or unraveling. I received this book free from Blogging for Books.
