Rosa's Land by Gilbert Morris
April 29, 2013 - Amy Phelps
Gilbert Morris delivers a tale of Old West lawmen and beautiful but fiesty women in "Rosa's Land."
Layfayette Riordan is a gentle man brought up to be a painter by his mother after his father has turned his brothers into rough and tumble men. After a brutal beating while trying to defend a woman, he secretly begins to learn to use firearms and eventually becomes a marshall in the Territory.
Rosa is finding life at her grandfather's ranch to be just as precarious as her former one when a group of outlaws steal her family's horses and kills someone. Rosa needs a marshall, but isn't too thrilled about who she ends up with - Riordan.
While Rosa's tough as nails and Riordan is more introspective, can he protect her and her family as he is sworn to do? Can the two learn from each other? And is there a chance that a love will blossom as well?
Morris' historical novel gives a great Old West feel, and I loved the character Rosa. Morris' books continue to be enjoyable.
"Rosa's Land" is published by Barbour. It is $12.99.
