The Journey to Love

Sixty Acres and A Bride
By:  Regina Jennings

Publisher:  Bethany House Publishers
ISBN #: 0764209906
Pages:  368

From the start, you will see this story is akin to the story of Ruth in the Bible. 
The story surrounds a young, recently widowed woman named Rosa.  She lives with her mother-in-law Louise who also lost her husband in the same tragedy that took Rosa’s husband.  Both women make a move back to Louise’s hometown where hardship awaits both of them as well as a wonderful group of family members.

Within the family, the reader will be introduced to Weston, the modern day Boaz.  He is the protector of the family and is also nursing tragedy and loss of his own.  Weston is drawn to Rosa from their first meeting but he is reticent to give in.  However, God has a very different plan for them both.

I enjoyed this book immensely from start to finish!  The characters were very well written that it seemed that they came off the page.  You will take a journey through their moments of struggle, loss, and joys.  This is the debut novel for Regina Jennings and I can definitely say that I am looking forward to reading further books from this author in the future!
