Rosa has left everything she knows to travel from her home in Mexico to go with her mother-in-law to Texas. Both of them newly widowed, Rosa and Louise hope to make a new life at Louise's old homestead. Rosa tries so hard, doing everything expected of her and more as she knows not what else to do. When she changed her faith to Christianity, her family cast her aside. When she married Louise's son, she loved him but could not make him love her back. Is she slated to go through life with only her faith to guide her?
Arriving at the ranch, they find they owe back taxes that could be nigh impossible to raise, even if the women work from dawn to dusk, but they try. Rosa settles in and finds the Garner family a delight and is happy to call them kin, even though many still don't trust the young Mexican girl in their midst. The neighbor man makes several advances toward Rosa but she knows she dare not say anything or the small town may think she started something. She finds Weston handsome, but knows he is still grieving for the wife he lost years ago. Also, her new friend Molly has set her sites on him. Rosa has no plans to remarry, just to work hard, follow God's teachings and save her house and sixty acres. But what if God has something else in mind for her?
Sixty Acres and a Bride is a rivetting read with compelling characters. A community that is small enough to know almost everyone, yet large enough to not know anyone really at all. The sense of family is strong within the novel as well as faith, hope and love. I was a firm believer in Rosa from the start and hoped she would find happiness and a sense of completeness. Does she find it? You'll have to read it to find out!
