The Sacred Scarred
Book #1 of The Beautiful Broken Collection
A modern-day Christian retelling of Beauty & the Beast.
“Beauty can indeed come from ashes.”
Calysta Daniels met Brendan Keefe at a time when she was embracing the true meaning of beauty and he was becoming the embodiment of a beast. Several years later, their paths crossed once again, and she agreed to a strange request to save her father from imprisonment: to live under the beast’s roof for four years.
It didn’t take long for him to realize that there was something about her that a part of him hated – something sacred threatening to expose all his scars. Scarred as they both were, she was holding on to a truth that kept her sacred, while he was holding on to a past that kept him scarred. Thus, the battle of wills raged within the beauty and the beast over what price had to be paid to make a person truly beautiful.
Also, I had a lot of help making this a reality, so I’d just like to acknowledge the following people for their precious feedback:
- my childhood best friend, Nhof
- Doris Lim
- Sarah Sims
- Anna E. Meyer [Website]
