Once upon a time, not so very long ago, God called me to be a writer, so I began to write.
Still, I am called, and still, I write, aspiring to publication. These are the musings of a would be authoress....

Sixty Acres and a Bride by Regina Jennings--My Take On It
First of all, let me say that I LOVE this cover!! It really goes with the character, and the colors and design are gorgeous!!!
This is Regina Jennings debut novel, I've been told, and she has done an excellent job of pulling me into her story. It's a tale of woe that turns to love, as two people learn to trust again.
Rosa is a young Mexican widow, and Weston is her husband's widowed cousin. In this stirring story, the two are constantly thrown together, making it virtually impossible for a few romantic encounters not to surface. Weston feels compelled to protect his cousin's beautiful widow, and she, in turn, feels indebted to him as well as drawn to him.
But there's always Molly, who is constantly throwing herself at Weston, and there's the back taxes, and the fiend of a man who is threatening to take the farm for his own.
With plenty of conflict and just enough romance, this book is definitely a winner. My only con is that there were times where I couldn't tell who was talking. Past that, I give Kudos to Regina Jennings for a great first book!!!
I love Rosa and Weston, and found myself rooting for Weston until the end.
If you like Historical Fiction, this is definitely a book to add to your list!!!
I received this book free from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
