The beauty in this book isn't cover deep, but page after page of beauty is captured by Anderson in this lovely story. The basis of this story it that we are so surrounded by beauty on the outside, but we fail to see the beauty that God created from the inside out. Capturing Beauty has constant reminders of beauty skin deep in the supporting characters such as Callie's parents who are television hosts, Callie's sister who is a model, Hunky Haven who should be in front of the camera instead of taking the pictures...and so on. Capturing Beauty, written by Brenda S. Anderson, is book 2 in Where the Heart is Series.

Seeing the beauty of people and things that God has created is so much deeper than the skin!
My favorite character...probably Haven. He's made a ton of mistakes in his past. He has come to terms with most of the mistakes and is now trying to prove to those he's failed that he's no longer a loser. In his forced "relationship" with Callie, he finds himself searching for true beauty and finds that the most beautiful people are ones that most likely are hiding behind themselves.
I recommend teens and adults who love contemporary stories that promote less than shallow topics. Just a lovely story. I was given an ARC of this book by the author. All thoughts and comments are my own.
In this novel, the heroine, Callie, must overcome her fears of being photographed and overcome her own prejudices about beauty even as she wrestles with her feelings of inferiority and plainness in a world of beautiful people. She learns from those she thinks are more beautiful that they have value outside of a pretty face or spectacular physique.
The characters in this novel also wrestle with guilt, addictions, restoration of broken relationships, reestablishing visitation rights, misunderstandings because of miscommunication and assumptions, honesty, and trust. Callie’s fear of being photographed and the root problem also addresses the long-term effects of bullies.
The scenic beauty of nature and all living creatures are included in the story as well.
Anderson does a nice job developing her characters. There is a bit of mystery because one wants to know why Mandy, Callie’s best friend, is being such a stinker in allowing her son to see his father, Haven, without Callie’s chaperoning the visits. There is a surprise element when the reason is revealed which finally makes Haven step up to do what he should have done a long time ago. I imagined the story playing out in my mind clearly and felt the rising tensions between hero and heroine as their attractions increase and they figure out what is best for everyone involved.
It’s a sweet romance and a quick read.
