Product Description

Ruthie Turner resents the Christians in her small Texas town, but when she falls for the new preacher, she must release her bitterness, and learn to love.

On the surface, nothing seems to change in this dull town--yet God always works beneath the surface. As a child, Ruthie was shunned by the local congregation after a scandal involving her parents.

Thirteen years later, her interest in an attractive single minister is bitterly opposed--unearthing a string of secrets which threaten to turn the church, the town, and her world upside down.

    Varina Denman in her new book, Jaded Book One in the Mended Hearts series published by David C. Cook introduces us to Ruthie Turner.

    From the Back Cover: Their small-town church wants them apart, but God has other plans.

    As a child, Ruthie was shunned by the local congregation. Thirteen years later, Ruthies heart begins to stir when an attractive single preacher arrives. But their relationship is bitterly opposedunearthing a string of secrets which threaten to turn the church, the town, and her world upside-down.

    Jaded is the rare novel that is both love story between a woman and man and God and His church. Plunging deep into the waters of shame, forgiveness and restoration, it will resonate with every woman whos experienced a loss of heart and a thirst for hope.

    Ms. Denman knows how to introduce us to the small town of Trapp in West Texas. Ruthie and her Mom have suffered terribly from the hands of the Church but that was 13 years ago now the time has come for healing. Then there is also the romance. Ms. Denman tells a remarkable story that will capture your attention and not let you go. Ruthie is a fascinating character that you fall in love with and root for to succeed. This is one exciting book that will keep you flipping pages to keep up with the story. Start the book early because you will want to finish it that night it is that interesting. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

    This review was written for Jaded: A Novel - eBook.
    Okay, I'll be honest here. I kind of dreaded starting this book because for one reason, it was THICK. And for another reason, someone said it was YA. Well, I don't remember who said it or how they got that impression, but they were wrong.

    Yes, JADED is thick. And even though the story is kind of slow and not really action-driven, it is very definitely character driven. Ruthie is an outcast in town and doesn't even know why. All she knows is that the church is to blame and when the new preacher shows an interest in her... well... that is not good. Not good at all.

    Written in first person (Ruthie's point of view) and third person (Dodd's point of view) this is a combination I've never seen before. At first it threw me and jarred me out of the story, but then I got used to it and didn't even notice. Well, hardly notice. I fell in love with Dodd, with Ruthie, with Gradie, with JohnScott and most of the residents of this quirky little town. The author has got small towns down pat and it was so real.

    I could guess some of the things that transpired, but only because I know how it works. I will not call this story predicable in any way. I highly recommend JADED and promise you that you will not notice the thickness once you get started reading it.

    I have to admire Ms. Denman's ability to write a slow romance that is still so full of tension it's amazing. Absolutely loved JADED.

    This debut novel won the 2013 ACFW Genesis contest in the romance category. And I can totally see why. It's a decadent read. Rich in both style and emotional depth. So many words to savor. Even more thoughts to process after the read. If you only read one book this year, I think this just might have to be that book!

    Denman's writing is so smooth. The story flowed off the pages and into my mind with technicolor clarity. This book consumed me. Turned me inside out and brought healing and hope I didn't know I still needed.

    I lived in Ruthie's skin. Felt her pain, her fear and confusion. Her yearning for so much more. Her scenes are written in first person POV which really helped me become this heroine. She's so heartbreakingly wary of Christians.

    Dodd's like this knight in shining armor, swooping in with the noble intent of healing all wounds. Only he can't. He's a glass half full kind of guy. Determined to see the best in everyone, which makes it hard for him to recognize the bad. And Ruthie so needs him to see.

    Stunning and complicated and so much more than just a love story.

    Ruthie Turner dreams of the day when she can escape her suffocating life in the bleak little town of Trapp, Texas. Working two jobs in order to support her often-unemployed, mentally unstable mother and herself, ostracized for years by many of the local upstanding citizens, and distrusting anyone who dares to befriend her, Ruthie is a lovely, but lonely twenty-one year old woman. Sadly, the downward spiral began in church, of all places.

    Dodd Cunningham, his mother, and teen-age brother arrive in Trapp, Texas, hoping to begin a new life after the death of his father. Dodd is also working two jobs; teaching math at the local high school and pastoring the small congregation that shunned Ruthie and her mother so many years prior. Everyone in Trapp, Texas crosses paths, so when Dodd and Ruthie meet in Trapp's small food mart where she works, the attraction is instantaneous, at least from Dodd's perspective. Ruthie is simply bewildered.

    Ruthie and Dodd are destined to travel a very crooked path, navigating land mines of hatred and bewilderment, of prejudice and cynicism, of love and hate; ultimately exposing ugly, menacing secrets that will unravel the peaceful facade of an entire town. And God? He is definitely the third major character in this fascinating saga.

    Simplistic in its approach to story, yet highly profound in its message, "Jaded" will leave readers pondering long after the back cover closes.
