It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. However, Indigo Burns discovers that a wonderful near picture perfect life may only display a surface portrayal of satisfaction, completeness and fulfillment, but cover-up deep conflicting emotions and values. Ambitious, smart, intelligent and beautiful, Indigo has a man who wants to marry her without reservation. Indigo loves him, but she has plans to attend graduate school to enable her to pursue a photography career. Brian proposes to her and wants the wedding to occur soon and for Indigo to change her plans for the future.
Indigo said yes to the proposal, yet she is not an enthusiastic bride- to- be. To everyone Brian is a wonderful man and a great catch. Indigo knows that, but still wonders can she be fulfilled and happy if she sacrifices her dreams to become his wife at this time instead of waiting. What will happen to her well laid plans after her photography internship at her home town of Jubilant, Texas? Is the seemingly love of her life worth sacrificing her career for or can the plans Brian has for her to fit her career within the narrow confines of a Navy Officer’s wife suffice just as well?
How does Indigo grapple with the competing desires of her heart and the competing agendas of those whom she loves? Can Indigo live with the consequences of her choices? “Worth A Thousand Words” explores the tough issue of making hard choices about love, relationships, and career. It gracefully demonstrates the power of prayer and faith to overcome unexpected adversity, the importance of friendships and wise counsel, and the courage of being truthful to the persons in our lives, and to ourselves in a non-preachy , but spiritually profound manner. Moreover, this graceful story emphasizes the importance of trusting in God when one cannot afford to “lean to one’s own understanding”. It is a heartfelt compelling novel about trust, love, friendship and forgiveness.
