    /A learner/

    "Disheartened" would be quite 'good for me as well.

    Also why "of the fact" and not "due to/because of/for the fact".

    Thanks

    That is why:

    She felt very disenchanted because of/due to that her partner got the recommendation and not she.

    Prepositions cannot take tense-carrying clauses as their complements.

    She felt very disenchanted/disheartened (because of/due to) that her partner got the recommendation and not she.
