Invisible by Ginny Ytrrup
Invisible by Ginny L. Yttrup
Ellyn DeMoss -- chef, café owner, and lover of butter -- is hiding behind her extra weight. But what is she hiding? While Ellyn sees the good in others, she has only condemnation for herself. So when a handsome widower claims he’s attracted to Ellyn, she’s certain there’s something wrong with him. Sabina Jackson -- tall, slender, and exotic -- left her husband, young adult daughters, and a thriving counseling practice to spend a year in Northern California where she says she’s come to heal. But it seems to Ellyn that Sabina’s doing more hiding than healing. What’s she hiding from? Is it God? Twila Boaz has come out of hiding and is working to gain back the pounds she lost when her only goal was to disappear. When her eating disorder is triggered again, though she longs to hide, she instead follows God and fights for her own survival. But will she succeed? As these women’s lives intertwine, their eyes open to the glory within each of them as they begin to recognize themselves as being created in God’s image.
What a great book to make you stop and think about your worth in God's eyes, which is what should matter most, not what the world thinks. I am sure that we have all felt Invisible at times or have wanted to be Invisible. God wants us to be the best we can be. That is what this book is about coming away from the things that are making us unhappy and trying to break through and become visible. Each character in this book has a situation that they must overcome.
I liked this book and liked the fact that it made me think.
I received a review copy of this book from Handlebar in exchange for my opinion.
