Karen WalrondIn a society where we are constantly bombarded with messages on how to think, how to feel, and how to look, it can be very easy to fall into the mindset that we are not enough, that we somehow fail as individuals.  The truth is that those aspects of ourselves that make us individuals are actually the sources of own beauty.  Enter The Beauty of Different, a chronicle of beautiful imagery and portraiture which both provoke and tell a story, combined with written observations and essays on the ways in which we find people who display individuality and uniqueness intriguing, even as we all collectively strive to be more like these people every day.  Divided into chapters focused on the many ways individuality or uniqueness can manifest itself, the book includes insightful commentary, and features both written and visual portraits of individuals who embody the major characteristics described in each chapter.  These are ordinary people, who are really actually extraordinary -- and therefore immensely beautiful as a result.

About the author: Karen is originally from Trinidad & Tobago, but currently lives in Houston, Texas with her English husband, American daughter and Rufus the Wonderdog. She holds a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Texas A&M University and a Juris Doctor from the University of Houston. She's a lover not a fighter, and really, just an all-round great gal.
