“Is there a mathematical calculation for beauty? Is there a perfect genetic code that creates a beautiful individual? Eunis' quest for an answer is prompted by her albinism and a large, grotesque birthmark that overpowers her face. How far is she willing to go to satisfy her curiosity?
PG Lengsfelder's absorbing, debut novel, Beautiful to the Bone, is packed with intrigue and mystery, each chapter exposing an unanticipated twist, or detail. Once you’ve read Beautiful to the Bone, you’ll be anxiously anticipating the next in the Eunis trilogy. This is a perfect add to your summer reading collection!” Rating: *****5 out of 5 stars -- T. Pugh, Amazon & Goodreads reader
"This is a very well-written book, but what really made me want to read it more was it was an extremely original idea. The main character, being an Albino woman, felt like an outcast and the book explored society's idea of beauty. It was a good plot, moved along by well-paced action and well-developed characters. Loved it!" Rating: *****5 out of 5 stars -- Amazon reader
"Lengsfelder has boundless imagination and creates such memorable characters. A vividly told story which makes this reader eagerly await the sequel(s). Bravo!" Rating: *****5 out of 5 stars -- KW, Amazon reader
Sound, sensuality and emotion
“PG Lengsfelder is an artist. He paints images with color, sound, sensuality and emotion. Lots of emotion. Beautiful to the Bone is not only the title of this, his first novel, but an apt description of his writing style. I haven't been so intrigued with a writing style since Annie Proulx won a Pulitzer for The Shipping News.” Rating: *****5 out of 5 stars -- William O. Joseph, author (Jefferson’s Nightmare)
"This book was simply beautiful. I am unsure what genre to describe it as, there's a mystery, science, mythology, fantasy, and a coming of age family tale. It's luscious!" Rating: ****4 out of 5 stars -- A.E., Goodreads Early Reviewer
A great read!
"A great read! It might be hard to categorize, but that’s also its strength. With the twists and turns of a mystery, a dash of fantasy, some humor, and elements of a psychological thriller; this is one book that constantly keeps you wondering what’s coming next, and hoping that it won’t end soon."

"Loaded it to my Kobo in Mexico City and read it non-stop on our 7 hour flight. A story that not only entertains but is very thought provoking. Have recommended this to my friends." Rating: ****4 out of 5 stars -- Anne Marie, Kobo reader
