A modern-day Christian retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
A beauty who cuts herself to cope.
A beast who steels himself to survive.
A beauty and a beast who need healing from their scars.
Life yanks Calysta Daniels out of her comfort zone when an odd request from a stranger becomes the only option to keep her father out of jail.
Brendan Keefe is perfection-turned-beast. The last thing he wants is to grovel at the feet of this imperfect young woman, who happens to be the only way out of the curse he got himself into.
Will Calysta’s history and brokenness help reach out to a beast who considers himself beyond redemption? Or will Brendan’s stubbornness deprive him of the love he so desperately longs for?
