Worth a Thousand Words by Stacy Hawkins Adams

Worth a Thousand Words is a book I received from Tywebbins Blog Tours to review. It's a book about a mid-20s woman named Indigo that has everything going for her. She's got a partial scholarship to a visual arts school in NYC to pursue photography, a boyfriend who loves her, a wonderful family, and a strong faith. The book is about how she deals with things when that perfect world begins to fall apart piece by piece. How she learns to make decisions for herself rathre than for other people, and how she learns to lean on God for help in making those decisions.

I thought the book was okay but nothing ground-breaking that I hadn't read a hundred times before. The writing was well edited and easy to follow, and the characters were well developed, but I didn't lose myself in the story like I have with other books. I won't give away the ending, but from about 100 pages in, I already knew what the ending would be, and it was exactly what I'd predicted. All problems were resolved, and Indigo found her niche in the world. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes a happy ending, a good wholesome novel, or a book written about faith that all things work out. 3 stars.
