Leslie says: "For most of my young adult life, I had known Jesus Christ only as the One who had saved me from my sins. I had been looking to an earthly romance to fulfill the deepest desires of my heart. I had been searching for an earthly prince to rescue me, to carry me away to his castle, to love and cherish me forever – to fulfill my feminine desire for tender romance. Like so many modern young women, I gave myself to one shallow relationship after the next, only to end up lonely and heartbroken. I looked to human relationships to meet needs in my heart that only Jesus Christ was meant to fill.  Until Jesus Christ becomes the Lover of our soul - the very center of our existence - we will always be looking in the wrong places to fulfill our feminine longing for tender romance.  We will end up broken-hearted and disillusioned, time and time again.  Christ alone can truly fulfill the desires of our heart.  Authentic Beauty is a personal and practical book about becoming a set-apart young woman in today’s perverse generation.  It explores the boundless opportunities God has for the life of a young woman who makes Christ the first love of her heart and allows Him to shape every aspect of her existence."

“Leslie Ludy hits the mark in challenging high school and college-aged women to live a 'set-apart' life, skillfully combining Scripture and common sense to demonstrate the "how" of biblical femininity...”
CCM Magazine

“Leslie Ludy effectively employs the power of her own story to show young women in a practical way the romance of a lifetime with their Savior, Jesus Christ…It is a book all young women will want to read.”
Christian Retailing

“A precious gem of a book by a princess of an author.”
Beverly Lewis, New York Times bestselling author

Encouraging August 5, 2013
Reviewer: MizB from shouldbereading.wordpress.com  
This book talks to young women about pursuing Jesus as their all-in-all, above all else. It gives practical advice for how to do this, and gives examples of why it’s wise.

There are also three short sections written by Leslie’s husband Eric about how to encourage the men in your life to become “warrior poets”.

Overall, this book was good. I think it is a great guide for young women, and a good reminder for women who are a bit older (like myself).

completely amazing! February 12, 2012
Reviewer: Bria  
I read this book at a time when I was very confused and lost in my life.  I didn't know what I was doing or who I was, and I was a 14 year old girl caught up the drama and craziness of high school.  I was very distant from God, but a part of me was searching for something more than the empty, hollow version of Christianity I had been living for the past 3 years.  I didn't know what to do until I read Authentic Beauty.  This book fueled me with a passionate desire to be with my Prince, showed me what it means to truly have a relationship with God, and gave me a whole new outlook on what I had previously thought about purity, Jesus, and my faith.  Authentic Beaty set me on the path to finding God again, and I don't believe I will ever be the same.  This book is a must read that changed my life!

I loved this book September 7, 2007
Reviewer: laura lucky from katy, TX United States  
I picked up this book, and just could not put it down.  The way it was written helped me to see things I had missed in the past.  I now plan to get copies for my girls in youth.

Reviewer: Elizabeth Sanchez  
So far I am at the tenth chapter. I am speechless! This book is life changing and wonderful. Sometimes I read and I am happy that I am following it, but others have drawn me more to Christ and have put me to shame. I want to meet Leslie so badly and thank her for this book. I thank Jesus for calling her to do this. This was what I was yearning for and this was what I needed. Praise God for His work and for what He is doing in my life and in so many others.

Reviewer: Michelle Heymes  
My boyfriend gave this book to me for Christmas and I was so excited because we both read and loved When God Writes Your Love Story. I am so excited to read another book by Leslie. I just started this book today and I never thought of God being my Prince that I can fall in love with. The way Leslie describes her relationship with Him in chapter 2 is amazing. This book reminds me that God is the True Love who will always love me unconditionally no matter what. I can't wait to recommend this book to every girl I know. Thank you Eric and Leslie for writing your books. I am so excited to continue reading Authentic Beauty and fall deeper in love with my true Prince Charming. I hope girls who read this realize that their dream of being a beautiful princess has already come true. Thank you so much for writing this book Leslie.   God Bless!  ~ Michelle
