Invisible by Ginny L. Yttrup
This story pulled me in from the get go, as it is from four different perspectives: Ellyn- the chef who loves butter but is afraid of men, Twila- the young woman overcoming an eating disorder, Sabine- a counselor dealing with grief, and Miles- the local doctor who is recovering from losing his wife to cancer. The characters are like good friends, you can imagine having some of the conversations that happen in the book.;)
I was blown away by just how insightful this book was into grief and how we handle it. Not to mention our views on weight, from both sides. Twila deals with her poor self image by starving her body, while Ellyn turns to food when dealing with her poor self image. I LOVED that the author addressed the issue through the lens that we are all made in the image of God and that it isn't up to us to try and change another person.
This book will blow you away and leave you wanting more after turning the last page!
