Review:Invisible by:Ginny L. Yttrup

About the Book:
Ellyn DeMoss--chef, cafe 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.

About the Author:

My Review:
 Something has to be said about the way the author Ginny L. Yttrup has laid out each chapter of this book. It was awesome! Each chapter is on a different character and their lives. My favorite character was probably Ellyn, because she is the one I mainly identify with. I love how each of the characters intertwined to form this story. It was raw and real and really came alive to me. Ellyn was alot like many women you know. She has very little self confidence but tries her best to talk her alter ego, "Earl" down when it makes her feel less confident.
Sabina, seems to have depression problems and has asked for a break from everything including her husband. Twila, the youngest of the women has moved back to town after an extended stay elsewhere to contemplate what God will do with her life next. This is a very moving book and really held my interest.
