About the book:
Jilted (David C. Cook, June 2016)
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.

About the author:
Varina Denman is author of the Mended Hearts series and a native Texan. She spent her high school years in a rural town and now writes stories about the struggles women face in similar small town settings. She and her husband live near Fort Worth, where they enjoy spending time with their five mostly grown children.
If you are looking for a book to read that is full of heart and a story that will completely draw you in and hold you captive, then "Jilted" is for you! However, I would highly recommend you read the first two books in the series first just because they are THAT good and the characters will become even more so real to you. Varina is a talented writer as she has the ability to create characters and storylines that are so easy to relate to and her descriptions are so detailed and written in a way that I became a part of the story.
Lynda has struggled with heartache, depression and thoughts of just feeling trapped, yet not willing to actually leave her hometown and start over. Described as a half-empty girl, she is consumed with negativity and tired of pretending. However, Lynda has determined that she is going to try and not hide within herself and move on with her life.
This book portrays life in a small town and how things can be both difficult and wonderful when everyone knows each other and their pasts. This is an emotional read and I found myself tearing up at times and smiling at other times. I highly recommend the Mended Heart series for a hopeful and inspiring read that will completely captivate you.
