Varina DenmanABOUT THE AUTHOR:

An avid reader and blogger, Varina Denman enjoys writing fiction about Christian women and the unique struggles they face. She seems to have a knack for describing small town life, and is currently working on a three book Texas series which will soon be published by David C. Cook. The first book in the series, Jaded, won the 2013 ACFW Genesis contest for romance.

Varina attended three Texas universities over a span of five years, majoring in four subjects and earning zero degrees. However, she can now boast sixteen years as a home educator, volunteering in the local cooperative where she has taught numerous subjects including creative writing and literature.

Even though Varina has spoken at ladies’ retreats and taught women’s Bible classes, she finds the greatest fulfillment facilitating prayer groups. She lives in Burleson, Texas, where she helps with Family Ministry in her home congregation. Varina is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and North Texas Christian Writers.

ABOUT THE BOOK

As a child, Ruthie was shunned by the local congregation. Thirteen years later, Ruthie’s heart begins to stir when an attractive single preacher arrives. But their relationship is bitterly opposed—unearthing 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 who’s experienced a loss of heart … and a thirst for hope.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

At first I wasn’t sure I would like this book, but as I kept read, I kept liking it more and more. It is one of my favorites in a while! This truth is, so many people go through just what Ruthie’s family went through with church people. And it is really so sad, because are we not suppose to forgive as Christians, and this truly didn’t happen in the life of this family. And I just couldn’t figure it all out, until the amazing twist at the end of the story. Well, I may have wondered here and there, but I wasn’t expecting the ending, and it made the story that much more enjoyable for me. A book of true love and forgiveness, and a little romance on the side!
