Invisible by Ginny L. Yttrup

Ellyn DeMoss -- chef, café owner, and lover of butter -- is hiding behind a layer of fat. 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.

I previously read two other books by Ginny L. Yttrup ... Words and Lost and Found.  Both of these earlier titles touch on issues that are prevalent in our society, but are often not talked about.  Her latest title Invisible is a look into the lives of three broken women, all of whom are struggling with self-image and self-worth.

Once again, I was transported into the lives of the characters in this book. I felt drawn to the problems that each of the women were having, and couldn't help but relate to their issues and feel their pain.

I loved how the characters, although from very different backgrounds and age groups, bonded together as friends and were able to help each other through some very difficult times.

If you have never read a book by Ginny Yttrup, please consider doing so.  You won't be disappointed, and your life might even be changed for the better.
