Publisher's Weekly

Jennings’s debut novel will have historical romance fans flocking to her tale that puts a Texas spin on the story of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz. Rosa Garner, widowed daughter-in-law of widow Louise Garner, returns with her to Lockhart, Tex., to take over the farm the Garners left years before. Her Mexican ways, however, take the town by surprise, and also catch the eye of Weston Garner, Louise’s nephew and a wealthy landowner. Rosa and Louise soon find themselves in trouble over back taxes. When Rosa follows Louise’s suggestion to approach Weston for help—straight from the Ruth/Boaz story—she gets more than she bargained for. But can she live in a loveless marriage that can save the family farm but damage her heart? Jennings’s story is rife with interesting subplots—evil neighbor, unrequited love, guilt—though a bit disjointed at the start as readers struggle to figure out who is who. The denouement, however, is a lovely picture of God’s provision, forgiveness, and love. Agent: Rachel Kent, Books and Such. (Feb.)Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    Beautiful Historical Love story

    From the beginning, this story resembles the biblical story of Ruth and Naomi.

    Rosa (mexican) and her mother-in-law Louise travel to the hometown of Louise after their husbands die. Rosa experienced difficulties adjusting to the texan town, but is attracted to Weston Garner.

    When Rosa and Louise face eviction from their farm, they must reach out to Weston for help.

    This story is intriguing and exciting, there is a depth to the emotions of the main characters thats quite fascinating. I enjoyed this book, I recommend it.

    Sixty Acres and a Bride (Ladies of Caldwell County Book #1)

    This is Regina Jennings debut book from 2012 that was a free download! The emotions of this book ran so deep at times. I dont think I have read a story with a Mexican heroine before. That was nice for me because my kids are half Mexican. As I began this story, I immediately felt the Ruth/Naomi biblical story resembled this one. Later on, my hunch was loosely proven correct.

    When Ruth and her mother-in-law, Louise, travel to 1878 Texas to start their lives over after tragedy has taken their men, they have so many trials to deal with; being accepted into a small town especially Ruth who is an outsider and different race, cleaning up Louises old home, getting a farm going, learning about farm animals, trying to pay 4 years of back taxes, and avoiding a sleazy neighbor.

    Tall, dark and handsome Weston Garner has become a loaner after the death of his wife, but holds honor and his large family of aunts, uncles, cousins and a sister very dear to him. When he accidentally stumbles upon Ruth wrangling a sheep, he is intrigued, and eventually begins to help her and his Aunt Louise establish themselves, while trying to keep a safe distance so his emotions do not get involved.

    God is nicely woven throughout the story, along with various characters personal view on Him. Some busybody women in the church (humph!) choose to look down their nose at Ruth and judge everything she does with close critical eyes. Others, like Aunt Louise seem to rely on God more like a genie, who will bail her out without her seeing the reality of a situation. Weston has kept God at arms length, but is coming around. Ruth is a newer Christian who constantly converses with the almighty, and genuinely seems to love Him.

    As Ruth and Weston grow closer together, there is so MUCH misunderstanding, largely due to her difference in language and culture, but also due to his emotional state. I cried several times as they went through it, until the light finally dawned.

    I also like how the chapters and beginning of each are noted in greensmall detail, but appreciated for a download.

    One thing I would ask of the editors, is to give us the ability to magnify the items AFTER the story. Other Stories You Might Enjoy were so small on my Kindle app, and I could not enlarge them. Dont know if they communicate with Kindle or not, but would be nice.

    I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars and would recommend it to others.

    This review was written for Sixty Acres and a Bride.
    Rosa and Weston are a lively match in this lovely debut novel by Regina Jennings. I love that we have a Hispanic heroine, Rosa. The reviewers on my blog raved over this story and once I read it I could see why. Once I read this book I went on and bought and read the rest of Regina's stories that were available! Highly recommend!

    This review was written for Sixty Acres and a Bride.
    Sixty Acres and a Bride is a wonderful read! It is set in post-Civil War Texas in 1878. It is a retelling of the story of Ruth, which happens to be one of my favorite Bible stories. So, this book was very hard for me to set down. I read it quickly and loved it from the very beginning.

    Rosa is a young Mexican widow who has traveled to Texas with her widowed mother-in-law, Louise. Rosa and Louise have a hard road ahead of them as they try to save the family farm, which has back taxes due. Rosa carries many burdens and much guilt. It is through her in-laws that she came to know Jesus. She feels so very indebted to Louise. Rosa was a sweet character that I was occasionally frustrated with, but it was only because she made things harder on herself than they had to be due to fears she carried around.

    Weston Garner makes a great "Boaz". He has a good heart and always tries to be there for his extended family, helping them as they need it. When Weston helps Rosa in order to try to save both her reputation and the family farm, it brings a whole new set of complications for these two people who are so perfect for each other, but so weighed down with baggage from their first marriages!

    This book is full of interesting characters and is such a good story. I highly recommend this fun, yet heartfelt book.
