Have you ever wanted to be invisible?
Invisible (Mendocino Village Series #1) by Ginny Yttrup follows the lives of four characters in a small town in Mendocino Valley, California, as they interact with each other and work through difficulties.
Ellyn, a chef and café owner, excels at seeing others’ beautiful traits—but sees herself as too fat to be loved by a man.
Twenty-something Twila is overcoming an eating disorder and facing daily triggers that might send her on a downhill spiral. Twila often speaks with readers about her struggles as a highly empathetic person.
Sabina has temporarily left her counseling practice and her loving husband and daughters to heal from tragedy.
Miles is a widowed doctor who promised his wife he’d consider marrying again. Readers hear Miles’s heartfelt prayers as he pursues God’s will.
The story is heavily angled toward Christian living, but the underlying themes are so pertinent to women’s lives that I think readers who don’t usually pick up “Christian” books will enjoy this one.
The struggle to feel worthy is a running theme, and readers may find it hitting home in unexpected ways. Before I read this book, I didn’t think of invisibility as something I desired. Now, I realize I might unknowingly pursue it at times. The solution the characters in the book find is in the Bible, which says we have been created in the image of God and are incredibly treasured and worthwhile.
Reader, is it possible you might be pursuing invisibility in some small, subtle way? Let’s talk about it.
