Waterbrook Press to Release A BROKEN KIND OF BEAUTIFUL by Katie Ganshert
A Broken Kind of Beautiful (WaterBrook Press, April 15, 2014) by author Katie Ganshert, follows the life of Ivy Clark, a ten year veteran model in the fashion industry.
Clark's life has centered on her appearance, so when her modeling career is at risk, she reluctantly heads to the quaint island town of Greenbriar, South Carolina, to work for her stepmother, Marilyn Olsen, who has hired Ivy to be the face of a new bridal wear line for her bridal shop.
With broken relationships, her career falling apart, and the reality of her life being conceived through her father's affair, Ivy's life feels broken and shattered.
Until, Ivy meets handsome photographer Davis Knight, who left his successful career in the fashion industry to become a maintenance man for a church.
Challenging everything Ivy feels about her own self worth, Davis is unlike any man she's ever known. Through their friendship, Ivy begins to receive a lesson in love, redemption, and true beauty, redefining her beliefs that she was a mistake and stirring hope that she can find real beauty in her stained and shattered life.
