“A Broken Kind of Beautiful” by Katie Ganshert, book review

Ivy Clark is a famous model whose career has been derailed because she “offered suggestions” to the photographer, which is not acceptable from a model. Now as she closes in on the magic age of 25, when models are typically finished in main stream modeling, she returns to Greenbrier for her father’s funeral. And so many memories are brought to the surface, and also some options for the future.

Davis has tried to bury his photographic career after a terrible accident that leaves his sister blind. But to help his aunt promote her wedding dress business following her husband’s death, Davis agrees to photograph the model to promote a charity event with the proceeds to aid an art program for the blind.

As Ivy and Davis must interact during the photo shoot, many old feelings are rekindled and gilt is brought to the surface. In the end, both are able to experience God’s forgiveness and grace.

This novel is the newest from Katie Genshert, and explores the cut throat modeling industry. This book does expose some of the hard knocks that models must endure, including exploitation of the women by their managers. The book is well written and shares many real examples of how words can hurt or destroy others, especially when carelessly spoken. But in the end, Genshert showed that God’s love and forgiveness is what truly heals all wounds.
