Book Three in the Mended Hearts series
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.
I have read every book in this series. The first book captured me. Varina’s style of writing just speaks to my heart and her characters are so real.
I loved this series so much I purchased this book to read because I missed the chance to get a review copy, that should say a lot 🙂
So, this book does start a bit slow but even saying that there was something about it that pulled me in.
I really didn’t like Lynda in the first book, I thought she was a horrible mother but as I read the second book I began to like her more and finally getting to this one I was ready to hear her story. It is a bit depressing but Lynda deals with depression so feeling that way while reading it makes sense, we are in her mind.
Clyde is a wonderful, strong hero. I adored him and only wanted the best of him. He is so patient with Lynda.
I love this feeling of hope I found as I read, that Lynda would eventually come to see Jesus loved her and He never left her even though these other men had.
I think if this is the first book in the series you have read you might not enjoy it as much because you don’t know the other characters and what has transpired before, but if you have read the other two you will love meeting up with the people of Trapp, Texas again.
