Testimony of a Trophy Model: The Ugly Truth Behind the Beauty
by Angela Bowie
Author Angela Bowie grew up a very sad, lonely, and confused girl.
Why, you might ask?
Well, in this book she shares her lifes journey from a young girl to a women searching diligently for the answers through trial and error. There was no road map for her.
As a Trophy Model for nine years, Bowie was made to look very beautiful with flawless makeup and lovely evening gowns. But no one knew that all the makeup doubled as a mask for her pain.
In Testimony of a Trophy Model: The Ugly Truth Behind the Beauty, Bowie shares explicit descriptive details of her life including family, men, money, sex, and love. She finally reveals the pain behind the beauty, the blessing and the curse.
Its ironic that we live in a country built on the idea that beauty is perfect and has no pain. Opportunity and wisdom caused Bowie to reminisce on and embrace hers. Hopefully this paves the way to a happier and more fulfilling future. The authors only weapons as she fought to discover her God-given inner beauty were Faith, Hope and Love. Once she became aware that her past had left bitter saliva in her mouth and was affecting her life, she became proactive and developed the courage to follow her own heart and intuition.
You know, it is hard to value yourself when you are weighed down by all kinds of baggage: resentment, anger, fear, and disappointments to name a few. The author would like to make clear however that the abandonment issue was the worst for her, and for that she had initially blamed her Father.
Bowies life was like her beauty, a blessing and a curse, until she faced the ugly truth head on.
