A Brush With Love by Rachel Hauck

 

A Brush With Love
by Rachel Hauck
A Year of Weddings Novella

Book Description:

Revealing the beauty in other women might be Ginger Winters’s specialty—but it will take an unexpected kind of love to help Ginger see the beauty in herself.

Ginger Winters drapes her hair over her right shoulder and adjusts the scarf around her neck to cover her scarred, withered skin. She’s had the scars since she was twelve, but she’ll never get used to the ugliness.

The fire changed Ginger’s life, but out of the pain and humiliation of her own disfigurement, one quality unexpectedly emerged: a gift for bringing out the beauty in other women. In a twelve-year ascent from top salon jobs in New York, Atlanta, and Nashville, Ginger traveled the world as personal stylist to country music sensation Tracie Blue. The success was almost enough to make her forget her own appearance.

Almost. Now that she’s opened her own salon in Rosebud after a dozen years away, the truth is staring Ginger in the face again: she’s still that girl, ugly and scarred, forever on the outside looking in. And this weekend she’ll be looking in as “beauty-maker” for the Alabama society wedding of the decade.

But when high-school crush Tom Wells shows up looking for a haircut, Ginger’s thinly veiled insecurities threaten to keep her from love once again . . . despite Tom’s best efforts. Can this professional beauty-maker manage to recognize the beauty in herself, or are some scars too deep to powder over?

My Thoughts on This Book:

 This novella tugged on my heartstrings as Ginger struggles with her self worth. After being burned in a fire at a young age, as an adult she still finds her self unattractive and won't accept any fact that someone of the opposite sex would look at her and call her beautiful, until Tom comes back into town. Tom was someone she was interested in when she was in high school but his family left in the middle of the night without explanation.

He's now back and can these two find common ground to build a relationship and can Ginger find herself beautiful? Great story..
