Publisher's Description

Ellyn DeMoss -- chef, café owner, and lover of butter -- is hiding behind her extra weight. 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.
 

Author Bio

 Ginny L. Yttrup is an accomplished freelance writer, speaker, and life coach who also ministers to women wounded by sexual trauma. She has two grown sons and lives in California.

Editorial Reviews

 "Ginny Yttrup is one of the new luminous writing stars on the Christian fiction horizon. Her words inspire my spirit and grip my consciousness like few others do. She received the Christy Award for her debut novel Words. Publishers Weekly described her second book, Lost and Found, as inspirational and entertaining. I have the happy privilege of commending her third book, Invisible, as yet another inspiring and riveting story of a woman who learns her dress size does not rule out romantic love. She can cook and eat but can she allow her heart to be fed as well? Her struggle with self-image and the ever-present inner voice of condemnation is a recognizable battle we all wage against the hurtful messages from our past. You will be encouraged, entertained and energized by the message of Invisible."

~-Marilyn Meberg, speaker and writer with Women of Faith, author of Constantly Craving

    If you suffer from a negative body image then do yourself a favour and pick up this book, it will encourage you to think and act differently toward yourself. I don't think there's a woman on this planet who won't be able to relate to at least one of these characters. I know I related so well to Ellyn. I couldn't put the book down and actually read it in one sitting. In our appearance-saturated culture (and yes, even CHRISTIAN authors are getting on the bandwagon! For shame!) this book is a breath of fresh air. Perhaps that has something to do with the author's own personal struggle. She reveals her characters, warts and all and doesn't attempt to turn them into Super-Christians! I liked its realism and didn't feel like I was being preached at or left with a toothache from any candy-coated, unrealistic, happily-ever-after tripe!

    Invisible by Ginny Yttrup, makes my Top Ten for 2013 list and my Top Ten of All Time. Yttrup employs a light hand and humor to impart heavy truths. Normally, I read to be entertained. With Invisible, when I least expected it, I was touched and changed. Novel Rocket and I give it our highest recommendation. This is a book everyone needs to read.

    I'm sad.

    I'm disappointed.

    I'm sad because Invisible ended. And I'm disappointed because when I come out of my trance of involvement reading this book, I realize the characters aren't real. They had become my friends. Now the book is finished and I can't look forward to spending some time with them.

    Ginny Yttrup has become even better (if that's possible) at defining her characters and creating interesting plots with twists, turns, and catch-your-breath situations that the characters must deal with.

    As in her other two books, Ginny has accepted the challenge of dealing with difficult issues: child abuse, emotional abuse, and now in Invisible: body image, depression, and self-worth. Ms. Yttrup really is adept at getting us inside each character's mind, emotions, and motives. We totally understand why they react the way they do.

    In a unique fashion, each of the four main character's chapters are written in first person. At times, this became a little confusing. I would have to remind myself who was "talking." But in time, the characters became real enough to me that it didn't matter.

    Also, one of the main characters, Miles, is male. Since I'm female, I'm trusting his perspective was consistent with maleness. It seemed like it. Very believable.

    I have looked forward to each of this author's books and I haven't been disappointed. Only disappointed that a good book has to end and the characters are figments of the novelist's imagination. I was hoping I would meet one of them and we could have dinner at Ellyn's restaurant. Can't wait for another book from this terrific author.

    In the struggle with insecurity fear feeds doubt.

    Ellyn, restaurant owner who often hides her emotions behind her physique. She feels inadequate to her counterparts and cannot bring herself to acceptance.

    Twila, a prisoner to the complications of food longs to fill her heart with something to take the hurt away.

    Sabina looks for healing from confining darkness.

    All three struggle with inevitable emotion and inner turmoil. Can each find that which seems unreachable or will fear confine the heart?

    Self Doubt, Regret, Love and Acceptance pepper a novel written in first person for each character portrayed and in each chapter progress. With easy to connect with characters and realistic scenery this faith challenging read has it all. A book for readers who are searching for a different kind of read. I was entertained and will recommend this book to others. Thanks to B&H Publishing Group and Win Books Weekly for the review copy for my review.

    What a powerful book in Ginny's Yttrup INVISIBLE. We have three, unique main characters is the story who are each struggling with issues and learning their way back to God. Sabina, Ellyn, and Twila could provide guidance to so many different women with similar issues or those other friends/family members who wish to help loved ones in their life. Ginny Yttrup tackles some tough issues with the ability to break down the issues and make them understandable to outsiders. The book, through-and-through, gives God the glory for the healing the various characters reach.
