The Thing About Beauty

Originally Published: November, 2010

Being beautiful has its drawbacks.

Tonya Brandt wants to marry a handsome man, someone who will complement her own beauty. But she's dated every hot guy in town without finding someone who loves her for her mind and talents.

Murray Twichell knows his chances with Tonya are about as big as a snowball in July, but somehow, he can't get her out of his mind. He's not very handsome, so he figures she would never date him. If only he could get to know the real Tonya without her discovering who he is.

When a secret admirer begins sending Tonya gifts and letters, she is excited. But who is this mystery man? She loves his personality, but what does he look like?

When Tonya finally discovers her secret admirer's identity, will she reject him? Or will she learn that true beauty is more than skin deep?

Reader Endorsements

I enjoyed reading The Thing About Beauty. God has blessed you with a special gift!

Penny M., reader

I thoroughly enjoyed this book because you made it so fulfilling and interesting. Tonya was in quite a turmoil communicating with "Poe" and Murray; but then Murray's web, which he wove, wasn't too easy to handle either. I had some good laughs over those episodes. Like the good writer that you are, you brought it all together as the way it should end.

This book was such a pleasure to read. I loved how Tonya changed over the story, and the presentation of Christ's love for the church in a husband loving his imperfect wife was so clear.

I saved this book for last thinking I would like it the least, but I love it the most!
