A BROKEN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL
This is a beautifully written tale of love and redemption in the most unlikely places. The characters at first glance seem to have it all, but after delving into their lives we learn things aren’t always what they seem. While the story has a nice ending, the epilogue, which ties everything up in a neat bow, is unfulfilling.
Ivy Clark has always caught everyone’s eye. But when her world goes awry and she is forced to make a decision to save her modeling career, she finds herself back in her hometown and trying to save what little she thinks she has left. Seeking the love from a father who never wanted her, she instead finds an unlikely friend in her stepmother and she learns that God does have a plan for everyone, even people who are beautiful yet broken.
