Overview
Sensational debut Historical Romance Finds Love on the Texas Range
With nothing to their names, young widow Rosa Garner and her mother-in-law return to Texas and the family ranch. Only now the county is demanding back taxes and the women have only three months to pay.
Though facing eviction, Rosa can't keep herself from falling in love with the countryside and the wonderful extended family who want only her best. Learning the American customs is not easy, however, and this beautiful young widow can't help but catch wandering eyes. 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, to what lengths will Rosa 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. 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.)
