About this Book
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 façade 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?

This was truly a beautiful story. My heart broke for Ivy, even though at times I wanted to slap her, she was in many ways a victim. Her story reminds me of the importance of fathers in a girl’s life or at least positive male influences.
From the opening pages the author grabbed my heart as I watched Ivy’s life fall apart at least in her mind. My heart also broke for Ivy’s step-mother, Marilyn. She faced some unthinkable obstacles and in the minds of many unforgivable consequences. She exemplifies the love of God in her actions.
Davis Knight was also an endearing character as a man of integrity. Even in his struggles I really liked him. He lived up to his name.
The story had significant messages throughout. The author did a masterful job of reminding us that God is in the business of fixing the broken.
If you’ve read any of Katie’s books and enjoyed them, this one is even better. If you’ve never read Katie Ganshert’s book but enjoy the likes of Colleen Coble, Denise Hunter then you should enjoy Katie Ganshert.
