God-Shaped Hole: A Novel

By Tiffanie DeBartolo

Living and working in fast-paced LA, Beatrice Jordan is a jewelry designer. Tired of being alone, she responds to a personal ad. On a whim, writer Jacob Grace had posted, “If your intentions are pure, I am seeking a friend for the end of the world”.  She could not resist an ad like that.

Perhaps by fate, these two develop a real relationship. They even help each other come to terms with unresolved feelings from their difficult childhoods. That is quite a feat in itself. But, they also awaken new feelings in each other, some that are even harder to tame.

This is a love story for the lonely, quirky, creative people in the world. It speaks to those who are looking for something, someone, to hold in the middle of their hurricane. They seek someone that is like them, and they believe, deep down, they are out there.

Fifteen years ago, this book was published by Sourcebooks. With a cult-like following, God-Shaped Hole has survived to become a classic in its own right. Come and read the bittersweet novel that helped define and shape a generation. Celebrate the elements of life and love, because these are the things help us become who we were meant to be.


  1. It sounds like a great book to curl up too!

  2. This sounds like a good read... The ad is intriguing and is a perfect match for someone who is looking to fill that big hole.
    It reminds me of that we all have a God shaped hole inside that we can never fill till we fill it with God. To quote St Augustine, "You have made us for yourself O Lord and our hearts are restless until they rest in you."

  3. I have never heard of this book but the cover would have drawn me in without a doubt if i had seen it on the shelf. I do judge a book by its cover. :-) Nice review! Thanks!

  4. I don't read a lot of fiction, but this sounds worth reading. XO
