Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

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.

Varina Denman writes stories about the unique struggles women face. She teaches creative writing and literature, volunteers in her local cooperative, and is a home educator to her five children. She resides with her family in North Texas. This is her first novel.

5.0 su 5 stelle Outstanding Debut Novel By Varina Denman: Jaded Reads Like A Movie In Your Head 1 marzo 2015
Di Joseph Courtemanche - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
[Full disclosure: I received a pre-publication copy of this work compliments of the author for review/endorsement purposes.]

Varina Denman has an incredible debut novel with Jaded. I was expecting another pleasant Christian love story with some wit and dry humor thrown in, nothing too heavy. I was wrong. This book has such evocative writing that I kept seeing the movie in my head as I read through it this week. Not only did it read like watching a movie, but it was a really good movie. One I would be proud to take my God Daughter to see on a Saturday, and my beloved wife on Sunday. Mom will have to wait for the Monday showing.

Set in a small (suffocatingly so in my worldview) Texas town it combines elements of To Kill a Mocking Bird and Cape Fear. I don't know if Varina meant to do that, but I loved the fact that I made the connection: it meant that the story elements were strong enough to bring those very deep emotional links right out in front. When you're compared to iconic authors right out of the chute, you've got the mojo.

Characters in this novel are crisply drawn. They are not the stereotypical stuff of romance books. As a matter of fact, while this book started out as a Christian Romance novel, it would be a huge error to place it in that category alone. It's a brilliant novel that is enjoyable reading for all adults. I prefer action-thrillers, but Denman kept me hooked enough that I'd carve out time after work to read each evening. Good stuff. Pacing, plot, and some twists were all excellent and kept me motoring right along.

The only downfall of the book is that she writes so well in scenes with food that I had to stop and snack - repeatedly. So far the must have list this week includes chicken fried steak, hot dogs, cotton candy, burgers, and hot chocolate. Thanks a lot for the weight gain!

Part of a series of novels, it's set the hook deeply enough that I will buy her future works without reservation. She's really set the bar for debut authors with this one.

5.0 su 5 stelle Jaded will capture your heart 1 marzo 2015

Varina Denman captures your heart the moment you embark on this journey of love, pain, and forbidden romance. Ruthie’s shadowed past forces her into a world of injustice and intrigue, but she is not prepared for what happens next. Jaded is for every man and every woman. I have read this book from cover to cover, and can't wait for the next one. Varina will draw you into the story as if you were walking side by side with the incredible characters.

Di Beth - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Sooooo good!!! I want to hug this author. All the feelings, sigh!

This isn't going to be a proper review, I'll acknowledge that now, BUT, let me just say, I was blown away by this story. I still have trouble believing that this is a debut novel. I literally read this in two chunks. I read the first half in one sitting, then didn't get to read it for about a week (that's what happens sometimes to books on my Kindle). Friday night, I was in the mood for a good binge-reading session, and there was no way I was not going to pick this up again. Finished the second half that night.

The first-person narration is really what made this story for me. Ruthie is an awesome character, so realistic, life-like and relatable. My level of "this is a real person, right???" rivals my connection (um, obsession?) to Heather Day Gilbert's character Tess. have I felt such a connection to a character. I don't read first person as often I used to, but Varina's writing reminded me why I love it when it's done well.

Another thing that was so impressive to me is how well Varina demonstrated Ruthie's back story throughout the present-day story. I didn't feel like there were any sections that were weighed down with lots of details to catch the reader up to speed. The small-town vibes are strong within the story, as are the prejudices and pre-conceived notions that can come along with that.

The plot packs a punch, with some sweet moments, but also a lot of heart-wrenching, emotional moments. Nothing feels overdone, however, but all is necessary to advance the plot and propel Ruthie's character forward.

I also have to mention Dodd, heart-melting, teasing Dodd and his compassionate brother, Grady. I enjoyed the sections that were from Dodd's perspective, and I did think it worked well that his perspective isn't in first-person. It kept some of the mystery there when reading the story from Ruthie's vantage point. Also, the relationship between Ruthie and her cousin John Scott is so stinkin' cute.

This is a romantic story, yes, but really it's not strictly a romance. It's more about a woman who comes to terms with what was done to her family years ago by those who professed to be godly and how to separate that hurt with her true feelings about God. It's a beautiful story about forgiving others, and, sometimes more importantly, forgiving yourself. What a well-done book, with realistic, endearing characters and an impeccable sense of place. One of my favorites of this year, no doubt. I am so looking forward to book two!

5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderfully engaging read with a good heart 23 gennaio 2017
Di Sandra Hutchison - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I seldom read Christian fiction marketed as such because I'm allergic to piety, but the cover caught my interest, I read the sample of this book, and I had to keep going. Excellent characterization of believable people, good plot, great pacing, really excellent prose (the invisible kind that lets you sink into a book), a wonderful sense of humor, and perhaps most of all a genuinely fascinating exploration of the problem of how church members can sometimes drive away, damage, and exclude people in a way that is anything but Christ-like. The main character has to be able to move beyond her own outcast status, as does the charming new preacher who finds he's in over his head with his new congregation, though he's probably doing as well as anyone could. The romance is a bit predictable but that's the nature of the genre, and the solution is perhaps a bit easy when it comes, but that's okay. I wanted an escape and I got that and much more. Highly recommended to anyone who won't mind having some faith mixed in with their small town romance. I should also note that although this is the first part of a series the story resolves in a satisfactory way.

5.0 su 5 stelle Ruthie had done a good job avoiding Christians until the Cunningham’s moved into town 10 aprile 2015
Di Nora A. Stlaurent - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I was pleasantly surprised by this story. It wasn’t what I expected. It was so much more. I instantly connected with Ruthie Turner, a strong, resilient twenty year old young lady with spunk, wit and determination. She’s learned to be a peace maker in a small town where everyone knows your name and your business. The novel is written through her eyes.
Ruthie had done a good job avoiding Christians until the Cunningham’s moved into town. She worked with Dodd Cunningham at a local school; he just so happened to be the new Preacher.

“Dodd stuck his head into the room and says, “Morning, you guys, Ruthie, Can I talk to you?”

“I wanted to talk to the preacher like I wanted a bad sunburn – and JohnScott knew it – but he only strolled past my desk with a teasing grin. “See you later Ruthie.”…”Of course he would leave – JohnScott undoubtedly had some twisted agenda to get me to befriend the Cunningham’s, but I wasn’t falling for it. Just because my cousin had bought into Dodd’s campaign of forgiveness and kindness didn’t mean I had to!...If Dodd had any interest in me, it was only as a missionary project.””…It didn’t take a genius to recognize Dodd’s influence, but the preacher and his God would have to be a little more creative if they expected to wipe away 13 years of hurtful actions!”

Ruthie was trying to talk some sense into her cousin, who seemed to be charmed by the Cunningham’s. “JohnScott, Jesus may love you even though you’re not good enough, but I’m not good enough for the Church…And they don’t love me in spite of it.”

JohnScott looked at Ruthie, “The people aren’t important, Ruthie.”

She replied, “The people are everything.”

He continued, “It’s about you and God. But I suppose people can get in the way.” She retorted, that’s a fact.”

My heart ached for seven year old Ruthie as she relays to Dodd Cunningham an event that changed her world forever. She’s not sure of the exact details of who or why but her mother grabbed her hand in church one Sunday and walked out on the service and they never returned.

I loved Ruthie’s transparency and how she tells it as she sees it. Ruthie starts to feel the ground shake, as her world was changing – for the good or bad she didn’t know. But all this talk of Jesus and the Bible got her thinking. “Her and her mom had stayed in the small town where they were ex-communicated from the church for rumors and gossip! She saw how bitterness took over her mom’s life and caused her to filter everything that happened in life thru the pain. Could the truth set them all free? Was there healing for the broken hearted? Dodd seemed to think so”…. Ruthie says, “I do believe in God Dodd…But the church is messing with him. I’m surprised he put up with it.”

“Really! Dodd smiles, “You nailed it. Sometimes Christians are a mess.”
Dodd was a patient man who saw the best in people and wanted to be the hands and feet of Jesus to this community. It wasn’t easy and things got messy. But he wouldn’t rush into anything. Either would Ruthie.

This was a realistic, non-preachy, sweet tender story I couldn’t put down. I felt as if I walked with Ruthie and Dodd in their faith journey. Velma lightened Ruthie’s mind when she said, “Sometimes you need to let go. Don’t worry, about everyone else…two adults have a hankering for each other so what?” Ruthie smiled inside and out.

It’s an excellent read with characters that touched my heart and stay a while. I was totally absorbed in this story and their situation. This is a great read and one that would be wonderful for your book club pick. This an amazing debut novel. This author is one to watch.
