Jilted, by Varina Denman {book review}

About the book

Lynda Turner has struggled with depression since her husband abandoned her and their young daughter fifteen years ago.

Yet unexpected hope awakens when a local ex-convict shows interest. As long-hidden secrets resurface, Lynda must fight for her emotional stability and for a life where the shadow of shame is replaced by the light of love.

Jilted tells of a woman who has lost the joy of living, a man determined to draw her back toward happiness, and a town that must—once and for all—leave the past where it belongs. It is a gentle reminder that all things can work together for good.

What I thought about the book

Jilted is the third book of the Mended Heart series, and I was blessed to receive all three books of this trilogy. While I only had time to read just Jilted, my mom did get to read all three. She did strongly recommend I read all three in order, as they would probably "make more sense." However, I found that I was able to follow the story line fairly well anyway.

The chapters switch back and forth between points of view: first person (Lynda's) and third person, which has the potential to make it challenging to follow. I found I could relate well with Lynda, especially, and Clyde as well, since I have gone through (and continue to go through) some pretty "messy stuff" in my own life.

Check out the series for yourself.
