A waist of a read

A Broken Kind of Beautiful I had heard so many great things about the book, I decided to finish reading it despite my lack of interest at the time.  Not a great read so don;t waist time trying to find a christian point in it.To much of marriage did not work pitch him get a new one.The theme verse of the book I did find to be taken out of context. This was troublingFeeling all alone, abandoned by family and God, fourteen year old Ivy Clark left Greenbrier, South Carolina to become a fashion model. Over the next decade she proved to be very good at her vocation since clients sought her out. She is also hurt by the people in her life as she desperately needed someone who would break down her barriers to love her as Ivy and not just for being a success. Now at twenty-four, Ivy's career is in rapid decline as the camera shows her age to those who pay the bills demanding a younger face.

Ivy returns to Greenbrier and works at her deeply devout stepmother Marilyn's bridal shop ironically to include modeling the purity white gowns that constantly remind her of being unwanted damaged goods. Ivy's former photographer Davis Knight left his camera behind to follow her to Greenbrier where he also once lived; he obtains maintenance work at a church. He always could see passed her mask to her inner insecurities and makes it clear to her he wants more between them; but she rejects him though she feels the same.
