Book Blog Tour Stop - Sixty Acres and A Bride by Regina Jennings

Today I'm hosting a book blog tour stop for the book, "Sixty Acres and a Bride" by debut novelist Regina Jennings.

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: http://ow.ly/9sK2C.

This novel, set in the post Civil-War era in Texas, was a fascinating look at how people had overcome the Reconstruction mess and a horrible depression to begin building back their lives and their towns.

It's also an interesting look at how people would look down upon a young Mexican widow, regardless of her former husband's family's status in town, and how she overcame the discrimination and gossip to begin a new life for herself in the tiny town of Prairie Lea, Texas.

Regina Jennings has done herself proud with this debut novel, and I look forward to reading more faith-filled stories from her in the future.
