Review: SIXTY ACRES AND A BRIDE

I'm posting a review of a book by one of our local members, Regina Jennings. If you like historical romance (Tracie Peterson, Kim Vogel Sawyer, etc.), this is a new author you need to check out!

And if you live in Oklahoma City, stop by to see Regina and buy one of her books on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18 from 11-1 at Mardel in Edmond.


SIXTY ACRES AND A BRIDE
BY REGINA JENNINGS

Reviewed by Lacy Williams


In this Western version of the Ruth and Boaz story, Rosa Garner plays the dutiful daughter-in-law who returns to a foreign land—Texas. Some folks think Rosa is real nice and has done a kind thing, taking care of her mother-in-law, but most don’t understand her and she feels pretty out-of-place.

Weston Garner is a relation of Rosa’s mother-in-law, and he meets Rosa at a family sheep shearing. He’s instantly attracted to the dark-haired beauty with the fiery spirit, but ghosts from his past make him keep her at arms-distance.

Until Rosa sneaks into his barn, looking for help, and finds a husband—Weston—instead.

Jennings writes a heroine readers will love. Rosa is strong enough to survive a harsh Texas prairie, and tender-hearted enough to dream of a love of her own.

Filled with vivid descriptions, a rich historical setting, and memorable characters, this is a book you won’t want to miss! Highly recommended!
