I have started saying that Ginny L. Yttrup is one of Christian fiction’s best kept secrets.  I wish it wasn’t true, but it seems to be right now.  She has been gaining ground and her first book, Words, continues to find readers even with the difficult subject matter.

Invisible is Ginny’s third book and she is just getting better and better.  She takes on the matter of body image,   which is a sore subject to anyone over the age of about 1.  We look into the mirror and don’t see what we think we should see and we beat ourselves up over it.  We watch TV/Movies and look at magazines and know we will never be a size 1 and we believe we don’t measure up to society's standards. 

Ellyn is not anyone’s idea of a model perfect figure.  She is a chef and believes that butter should be an ingredient in every dish possible.  Twila is recovering from anorexia.  She has always tried to make her dad love her and she thinks if she doesn’t feed that need she will not need his love.  Sabina is a counselor who needs time to recover.  She needs to figure out that other people’s choices are not her responsibility.  Three very different women on a journey together.

I am not sure I can put my finger on why Ginny’s books are so good, but I know that she writes about issues that either affect us directly or someone we love.  She writes strong characters and does not give pat answers to the problems.  Her solutions are not a solve-all to the problem, she has her characters know and understand that faith in God does not make us perfect any more than losing weight will make us happy with ourselves. 

Whatever it is, I know that I am already looking forward to Ginny’s next book.
