As someone who isn't usually much for Christian Fiction novels, I can admit that I probably wouldn't have gone for this book initially if I would have known that it fell into that genre. Luckily I didn't realize that because it was not detracting from the story. Katie did a wonderful job of sneaking a lot of it in without shoving it in your face. Regardless of your beliefs the underlying message is one that is useful to anyone. We should all look for forgiveness, redemption and love.
Despite a slow start, the book is never not enjoyable to read. Katie does an amazing job of creating realistic characters that have realistic problems. She wrote about many difficult issues in this book and there were times where my heart just broke for some of the characters and I would have a tear or two drop from my eye. As you are reading you can really connect with the characters and feel their pain and their frustration at life and themselves. Overall I definitely enjoyed the story and the message that it brought forth, bringing us all a little deeper into fashion, photography, and what it feels like to be "broken". I definitely recommend this book and give it 4 out of 5 stars. Great job Katie Ganshert, I will definitely look into your previous novels: Wildflowers from Winter and Wishing on Willows.
