First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Varina Denman and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Jilted" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.The third novel in the Mended Heart series, “Jilted” by Varina Denman is a thinking woman’s Christian romance novel. This is an honest look at the life, struggles and personality of a woman who was abandoned many years ago. Denman beautifully crafts her characters including the town of Trapp, Texas with depth and great care. She deals with issue like depression with great sensitivity and knowledge gained from either painstaking research or experience. This novel was so real, it took concerted effort to remember that it is a work of fiction. And I love the thick thread of spirituality that is woven through the novel.
Lynda Turner isn’t looking for love. After being abandoned, she has a hard time trusting. But the most unlikely of men turns out to be the balm that her still-wounded heart needs to heal.
My take-away is that God uses the most unlikely people and circumstances (even the most painful parts of our lives) to mold us and bless us and help us to be a blessing to others. Thank you, Ms. Denman, for telling such a beautiful story.
