How Far Will She Go to Save It?
With nothing to their names, young widow Rosa Garner and her mother-in-law return to their Texas family ranch. Only now the county is demanding back taxes and the women have just three months to pay.
Though facing eviction, Rosa falls in love with the countryside and the wonderful extended family who want only her best. They welcome her vivacious spirit and try to help her navigate puzzling American customs. She can't help but stand out, though, and her beauty captures attention.
Where some offer help with dangerous strings attached, only one man seems honorable. But when Weston Garner, still grieving his own lost love, is unprepared to give his heart, Rosa must decide to what lengths she will go to save her future. Read an excerpt: http://ow.ly/9sK2C.
~ MY QUICK REVIEW ~Sixty Acres and a Bride is an interesting novel that parallels the Biblical story of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz. Rosa, a hard working and attractive young widow travels with her mother-in-law from Mexico back to Texas after both of their husbands pass away. There she meets Weston and the ups and downs of their relationship begins.
I really enjoyed this book even though the extended stalemate between Rosa's and Weston's stubborn hearts at the end bored and bothered me. Regina Jennings did a fantastic job developing both her characters and the story line. The manner in which she used the Naomi-Ruth-Boaz plot was brilliant! I highly recommend Sixty Acres and a Bride.
