Scarred Beautiful

Andrea Smith seemed to have the perfect life: a devoted husband and beautiful children. But in an instant, it all came crashing down like a house of cards.

Leaving her family behind to check into the Pima County Jail in Tucson, Arizona, Andrea experienced a shame that was deep and boundless. The painful episode dredged up emotional, and even physical, scars that she’d long buried and hoped to forget. From her humiliating strip search through her final, triumphant release, Andrea’s memoir Scarred Beautiful eloquently chronicles her touching journey through shame, anger and tragedy that threaten to break her spirit for good. It’s through this journey that she learns to unearth the beauty in her flaws – and emerge from incarceration with renewed courage and faith, and a new appreciation for what is most precious and cherished in her life.

Andrea Smith’s raw, honest accounting of her life delves into ugly experiences to reveal the beauty inside. Scarred Beautiful will touch readers who may be hiding their shame or questioning their very faith in God, but are ready to overcome. Her story is one of courage and faith… and the unlikely gift of adversity.
