This book review is for the novel "Sixty Acres and A Bride" by Regina Jennings.
This is Regina's debut novel and I absolutely loved it! I can't wait to see what she comes out with next.
The novel is based off of Ruth and Naomi and Regina does a great job with it!
Rosa Garner and her mother-in-law, Louise Garner, arrive home from Mexico they are penniless and find out they owe four years of back taxes on the family held farm.
Rosa, somewhat lost in this new land, determines to do everything she can to help and make sure that her mother-in-law never regrets the decision to bring her along on this journey.
Unaccepted by some and feeling like she doesn't belong at times, Rosa, is a spirited and determined woman despite her obstacles. She is unused to the customs and doesn't know the particulars of the Ruth and Boaz chapter of the bible but finds herself living out a smiliar circumstance thanks to her mother-in-law.
But like, Ruth, Rosa handles herself with grace and long suffering.
The Boaz to her Ruth, Weston Garner, finds himself a partner in this story while still grieving his own losses, he's not sure how to give his heart to this intriquing woman and might lose her before he's really gained her.
There are so many nuances to this book. Not only the parralel to Ruth and Boaz, but family matters, heart, feeling foreign in a foreign land and learning to turn the other cheek even when you don't want to. I give a huge thumbs up to Regina! Great debut novel! I encourage all of you to read it for yourselves!
