She's Finally Found a Place to Call Home . . . How Far Will She Go to Save It?
With nothing to their names, young widow Rosa Garner and her mother-in-law return to their Texas family ranch. Only now the county is demanding back taxes and the women have just three months to pay.
Though facing eviction, Rosa falls in love with the countryside and the wonderful extended family who want only her best. They welcome her vivacious spirit and try to help her navigate puzzling American customs. She can't help but stand out, though, and her beauty captures attention. Where some offer help with dangerous strings attached, only one man seems honorable. But when Weston Garner, still grieving his own lost love, is unprepared to give his heart, Rosa must decide to what lengths she will go to save her future.
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... a lovely picture of God's provision, forgiveness, and love.
Unconventional heroine; engaging secondary characters...brings something new to the genre.
The twists and turns in this book keep your attention to the very end.
