Sixty Acres and a Bride: A Book Review

About The Book:

She's Finally Found a Place to Call Home... 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.

About The Author:

Regina Jennings is a graduate of Oklahoma Baptist University with a degree in English and a history minor. She has worked at The Mustang News and First Baptist Church of Mustangalong with time at the Oklahoma National Stockyards and various livestock shows. She now lives outside Oklahoma City with her husband and four children.

My Review:

One of my favorite books of the Bible is Ruth, and I absolutely love the story of Ruth and Boaz. So when I discovered that Regina Jennings debut novel, Sixty Acres and a Bride was a fictional account of this beautiful, Biblical account, I could not wait to read it. I was not disappointed.

This amazing story is set in the hard Texas prairies, and each character is so incredibly developed and I was absolutely stunned with incredible descriptions of both scenery and time periods mentioned in the book. It made me feel that I was right there, experiencing things right along side each character. The book is very easy to read and will appeal to all those fans of Christian Historical/Western Fiction. My favorite character was Rosa, and the book will capture your attention, and keep it, through to the very last pages.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
