Synopsis

A soaring career... A fractured heart... Left in shattered shards of stained glass. Aspiring author, Callie Clark, finally achieves her most-coveted goal, landing a contract in a highly sought-after publishing company. Reeling from the pain of a broken heart, Callie puts her love life on hold. Focused solely on her career, the dream she’s faithfully held onto becomes taunting, and the higher she climbs, the faster she falls. When tragedy winds itself through triumph, Callie learns to open her heart again. But it might be too late when a visitor from her past resurfaces and threatens the dream she clings to.

My Review 

An unexpected but memorable journey. Beauty Mark is the first full length novel I've read by Ms. Walls and I am in love with her writing and her daringness as an author (also her covers because look at this beauty). This story is unlike any book I've read recently. It's a love story but it's also a journey of acceptance and growth and finding your place in life.

Beauty Mark follows Callie Clark. She's graduated college and has found that her 9-5 job is not fulfilling. So she stops putting her dreams on hold and begins her writing career. She struggles at first but she's finally found what makes her happy. What she doesn't expect to find more than just coffee and a quiet writing spot at Starbucks. But she does. She also ends up writing a book that lands her with the book contract of her dreams. Yet as she finds success in her professional life, she also finds unimaginable grief. Yet with the help of her best friends Hayden and Liam, her life becomes fuller than she ever expected. 

This book was a journey. Right from the start I was pulled into Callie's story. I was hooked and absolutely engrossed in this story. There were twists and turns I didn't see coming. I was at times shocked and dismayed but I was also breathless and amazed. This story was a bit angsty and at times I was admittedly as frustrated with Callie as some of the side characters were but I always "got it". Stephie wrote a story that made me sympathize with Callie even when I didn't always understand her. 

After a novella and a full length novel, I am excited to find time to go back and read Ms. Walls' backlist. Her strong writing, her story telling ability and her characters have created a new fan.
