About the Book:
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.

I have found myself enjoying tales of the American West lately. This one takes place in Texas after reconstruction when Rosa Garner, a Mexican native returns as a widow with her mother in law to her husband's ranch. There she meets the rest of the family and learns about what it means to be a lady in "society." It runs completely counter to her nature; Rosa is outgoing, honest and most of all, hardworking. The people of the town don't know what to make of her.
Weston Garner lost his wife and blames himself for not being able to save her. He feels he could have acted to stop her death. He also feels the eyes of the town on him and knows they blame him as well. He accepts Rosa into the extended family - he cannot resist a damsel in distress and Rosa's challenges in dealing with a brand new culture certainly bring her distress.
This is a very sweet tale of family bonds, cultural differences and loving people for themselves. Rosa tries so hard to fit in and become something she is not. Weston tries so hard to be something he is not. Obviously they are perfect for one another. The romance builds slowly, is thwarted (of course) and gets back on track. Winston is a Texas hero - full of love of his fellow man and trying to help anyone he can. He can't stand injustice and does what he can to right its wrongs. Rosa is not afraid of hard work and will do what she can to help the woman who saved her.
This was an enjoyable book with great themes and wonderful characters.
