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.
My thoughts: How do you cope when the people you love keep leaving you, whether through death or choice? Lynda Turner is a woman who no longer believes she has the right to happiness. After losing most of the people she has loved in her lifetime, when the chance for love comes her way, she feels she doesn't deserve to be happy. As secrets come to light and old hurts mend, she begins to see life in a whole new light.
I enjoy the honesty of this series. Varina has taken on some tough subjects with each of her characters and done a wonderful job of spinning a story of hope and restoration. With this being the final book in the series, she wraps things up nicely. I look forward to reading her next book or series, since she does a great job of writing stories that are so lifelike.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
