Book Review: Invisible

Invisible by Ginny Yttrup is a story about how interaction between friends can turn into friendships, love, and much more.

Ellyn is a thirty something single female chef living in a small town. Although she loves her restaurant and the food she creates, she feels there is something missing in her life and in her. As she starts building new friendships with people in the town she starts to look at herself and her relationship with God in a much different way.

Twilla is still young and trying to figure out what causes all the issues she has in her life. Although she has come to recognize her demon “ED” she still struggles everyday and tries to find the cause and God’s love to make it go away forever.

Sabina was a professional psychologist with an amazing family and career until that day…. Now she is running away from life and her practice and hiding in a small town for a year to grieve. Long ago she has given up on God and the relationship her friends and family have with Him. If He loved them all so much how could he allow such things to happen?

Miles is a local doctor who grieves the loss of his wife two years earlier. Now he has the last promise made to his wife to fulfill. Try and find someone new to make you happy. His wife suggests “What about Ellyn?” As he starts learning what God’s plan is in he and Ellyn’s life is plagued with fear in starting to date all over again.

As these four characters interweave a beautiful story and true friendship, love, and God’s love unfolds. I truly enjoyed this book. It is a long book (~350 pages) but it read so fast and easy I had it completed in 2-3 days.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story. This book is not only entertaining but has a great message in always seeing God in you. You are his creation and Jesus lives in you (all you have to do is ask). One of my favorite parts is when Ellyn is told to look around at all God’s beauty in natures and all his creation. Why don’t you see that also in you? Are you not more important than the trees and river? So true. We over look the beauty in ourselves inside and out because we get caught up in the things we see as flaws.

Note: I did receive a copy of this book for free from Handlebar publishing. The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
