really liked it

When their husbands are killed while living in Mexico, Rosa Garner follows her mother-in-law when she returns home to Texas. Upon arriving, Louise and Rosa discover that renters abandoned the family farm, back taxes are owed and they have no way to pay. However, the extended Garner family looks out for one another and as they work to raise the necessary money and make the farm productive, Rosa finds herself drawn to one of the Garner men in particular.

Weston is the perfect cowboy, but a man who harbors his own grief and regret. As he finds himself drawn to Rosa, he's not sure he's ready to commit to another woman.

Inspired in part by the story of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz, this is a charming and entertaining story of love and family and loyalty. I absolutely loved Rosa and her spunk as she tried to find her way and fit into this new western, American culture. The Garner family is terrific and full of their own quirks, yet loyal to a fault.

A terrific debut novel. I look forward to more from Regina.
