Sixty Acres and a Bride
Rosa Garner (the main character) and her mother in law return to Texas and their small ranch after losing both of their husbands in Mexico, only to find that their ranch (that had been rented out) was far behind on its taxes and they were now facing losing the ranch as well.
In the story both women struggle to bring the ranch up to standard and bring in some money while also having to deal with some shady neighbors and a lot of discrimination because of Rosa's heritage.
This book was great, I very much enjoyed reading it, especially because the the main character (Rosa) was not portrayed as some weak woman who couldn't take care of herself. While there were situations where she did receive help, she also was shown that she had enough strength of character to face them herself as well. (Which I really appreciated about this book!)
I highly recommend this book, this is the first time I've read a book by this author and I sincerely hope this will not be the last. The book was very well written and very attention grabbing!
