Issues Fiction Author Ginny L. Yttrup Draws Acclaim
for Proving the Adage, “Write what you know.”
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Author Ginny L. Yttrup, who fast-gained respect as a writer whose work “challenges the reader to pursue spiritual growth as fully as any self-help book would” (Publishers Weekly), delivers a third novel of hope and healing.
In Invisible, set to release in April 2013, the overarching theme is allowing God to set us free, a theme which Yttrup houses in the context of weight related issues—too much or too little—and emotional bondage. Yttrup, as is often the case with the books she writes, relates to these issues personally. “I’ve struggled with body image and weight issues my entire life,” she says.
Yttrup acknowledges that weight and body image issues are a struggle for many women—as is emotional bondage in all its forms. “This is a story of how God sets women free from the our cultural obsession with body image and perfection in all areas of life. The protagonists in Invisible experience transformations physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and come to recognize themselves as ones created in the image of God,” she explains.
Issues-related fiction is what has drawn so many readers to Yttrup’s other novels, Words and Lost and Found, dealing with topics of physical maltreatment and emotional abuse, respectively Words is the recipient of the ForeWord Reviews 2011 Book of the Year Award in the adult fiction category, as well as a 2012 Christy award winner for best first novel.
