Sixty Acres and a Bride- Review


                                                Sixty Acres and a Bride by Regina Jennings

 Summary fromGoodreads
With nothing to their names, young widow Rosa Garner and her mother-in-law return to Texas and the family ranch. Only now the county is demanding back taxes and the women have only three months to pay. Though facing eviction, Rosa can't keep herself from falling in love with the countryside and the wonderful extended family who want only her best. Learning the American customs is not easy, however, and this beautiful young widow can't help but catch wandering eyes. 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, to what lengths will Rosa go to save her future?


A wonderful tie in to the story of Ruth and Naomi. Rosa was such an easy character to relate to , she was so human and innocent in her ways, even naive and times . I loved how Weston felt that it was his job to take care of everyone to see to the well being of all . I found Weston and Rosa perfect for each other. Rosa had such a passionate spirit and Weston seemed to need a little stirring in his life. Rosa and Weston both were such loyal characters. I loved how the author Regina Jennings painted a picture how God can lead us where we need to be , how God can take a situation that might be wrong or harmful and turn it into something wonderful , into something right. I challenge everyone to check out this book and I look forward to seeing more from this author . She paints such a beautiful landscape , I easily fell in love with the land as well as the characters. Thank you Bethany House and Regina Jennings for the chance to read a wonderful book .

( I was given this book in return for my honest review)
