    Family - challenging, loyal, even frustrating, but worth it.

    What a delightful story. The author does a wonderful job in bringing her characters to life. This is one of those books that draws you and doesn't let go, even for a moment. I chose a busy time of year to read this novel and it drove me nuts that my reading time was interrupted. I found myself slipping away for a moment or two to read another chapter.

    If you are not familiar with Regina Jennings work, you are in or a fun surprise. She includes a little bit of everything in the story.

    I especially enjoyed Rosa with her love of life. Even when she didn't fit in, she pushed onward and made the best of the situations.

    I highly recommend Sixty Acres and a Bride for anyone who likes historical, romantic fiction.

    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.

    Other books in the series: Love in the Balance Book #2, 2013

    Caught in the Middle Book #3, 2014 (which, I also read and reviewed)

    This copy was downloaded for free and I am offering my honest opinions for no compensation.

    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!
