Book Review: "Justified" by Varina Denman

Choosing to review Justified: A Novel (Mended Hearts Series Book 2) (David C. Cook), by Varina Denman was a risk I was willing to take having not read the first installment of her Mended Hearts series.  The past and future installments have skirted there way to the top of my to read list.  In no way did I feel the story was slighted from having not (yet) read Jaded.

Fawn Blaylock's life is experiencing a season of upheaval due to her untimely pregnancy.  Unwed and ostracized by her small town, local church, and well-to-do family she has to learn not only how to fend for herself, care for her future child, but also who she is outside of the titles implemented upon her by her small town society.  Fawn learns to hope in her future, in grace, in love and romance, and in faith.  As past choices, not only her own but those of her parents, haunt her she is shaped not only by the consequences of those choices but by what those choices teach her.  Denman has brilliantly woven together honest characters.  Your heart will fall and soar as you follow Fawn's journey.  As she finds her faith you may find some new truth revealed in your own.

I definitely recommend this read.  It's a light and quick but the story has enough depth to keep you interested and on the edge of your seat.  I think I may be becoming a fan of Denman, I felt pretty attached to these character quit a few days after finishing reading and didn't want to let them go!  Purchase your copy on Amazon
