I was privelidged to receive a copy of Sixty Acres and a Bride by Regina Jennings from Bethany House Publishers. The fabric of this story is as finely embroidered as the clothes the main heroine (Rosa) wears. Set in post Civil War south Texas, there enough historical flare to keep the story interesting. You will find the story reminiscent of the Biblical account of Ruth and Naomi, but with enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. This book is about love and loss, finding one's place in a new community, sticking with friends and family in need, and trusting in the Lord. I really enjoyed reading it and hope you will give this debut novel a try.
