Book Review and Giveaway Info: Sixty Acres and a Bride

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. Read an excerpt:   

My thoughts
While not being an overly religious book, this story has great parallels to the story of Ruth and Naomi from the Old Testament.  I have always loved the story of Ruth and Naomi so it is not surprising that I enjoyed this one as well.  I love Rosa's spunk and her desire to let who she is shine through, even when it was not socially accepted.  I also enjoyed reading about the cultural differences between Rosa's Mexican upbringing and that of the Texas town she  settles down in.  On top of all of that, I greatly enjoyed watching the love grow between Rosa and Weston.  It was a love that grew and could be seen by the reader and others, but was not immediately clear to them.  In fact, they both seem to try to run away from what they have, but in the end, like all good love stories, they get it all figured out.

I highly recommend this book to all those who enjoy a good love story, to those who enjoy the Biblical story of Ruth and Naomi, and to those who enjoy reading about women who follow their hearts, despite what society wants them to do.
