Read A Lot Rhonda - Rhonda Laney
This is the first Gilbert Morris novel that I have read but I hope it won't be the last. His discriptions of the paintings and drawings Lafayette made me want to see the real pictures he did a great job of the discriptions of the art and landscapes.
My Book Addictions - Samantha Kinkade
A wonderful tale of the western world, filled with chivalry, faith, and plenty of adventure, Gilbert Morris’ enticing story is sure to leave you with a smile on your face.

Ok!!! It’s an awesome story line, well developed characters and enough emotion to blow you off!!

 

I definitely recommend this book especially to those who have sons!!! Because even though this is a romance it’s much more than just that- it holds a lot of wisdom between the lines. It is only fitting that an author that has eighty-some years in his back pocket wrote it. Thank you Gilbert Morris.

Kingdom Airwaves - Victor Gentile

Gilbert Morris is an incredible storyteller.  Mr. Morris can write about anything, in any time period, and it always comes out wonderful.  However when Mr. Morris writes a Western I think that is when he enjoys it the most.  I have been reading everything by Gilbert Morris for a long time and I have to say that this may be his finest work.  This is also just plain fun and exciting as well.  It is a book of the romance between Riordan and Rosa. Then there are the themes of destiny and dream fulfillment.   Gilbert Morris is an expert at bringing historical events to life while weaving in the fictional aspects of the story in a seamless flowing pattern. He makes you care for all the people involved and takes you along for the journey.

Great story teller, an easy read. I haven't read such a wonderful story in a long time. This is one I could not put down.

WOW!!!!! This was an amasing book of love,Christ, romance and trust. The life that Rosa had and how she gave her life to the Lord the same with Fay is amasing. This is a clean modest christion western that EVERYONE should read. It makes me love it even more becouse i live on a BIG working cattle ranch with my eight people family. My family all loves the Lord and the wonderful life hes blessed us with out in the middle of NO WERE. I hope everyone who reads this book will really takes the words to heart.

4 stars I think the title does not really fit for the book. Rosa we don't meet until quarter of the way into the book. Plus she does not own any land herself. I like Rosa's Land. It is a western novel. A Christian novel, and even romance novel all in one. This is a clean read too. Lafayette is the the youngest of three sons. His mother does not like how her husband raised her first two sons so when Lafayette was born she told her husband that she intended to raise him more gentlemanly. She taught him the arts,to be gentle and thought he would make his lively hood as a painter. Fay came to the aid of a woman and was beat up badly. After he healed he wanted to learn to fight. He had really fast hands. His father did not think much of Fay and told his two brothers to watch out for him. He had a man watch out for him. Fay decided he wanted to be tougher and become a man his father would be proud of. Plus he lost a girl because she was afraid he was too good for him. Lafayette decided he would be a marshall for out west. He bought a gun only a .36 so he had to be accurate. a rifle, and went into the woods for a month to survive by what he could feed himself. I love westerns. I loved how Lafayette decided on a goal and worked hard to get it. He would put up with a lot to make his goal. He took the worst jobs that the other marshalls would not do. Rosa worked hard to help her family but she had a temper and treated Lafayette terrible when they met. Because she wanted a marshall with more experience and one that looked more western. This is the first Gilbert Morris novel that I have read but I hope it won't be the last. His discriptions of the paintings and drawings Lafayette made me want to see the real pictures he did a great job of the discriptions of the art and landscapes. Thier was talk of a couple of bible stories, a little talk of God but it fit into the story well. I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

Very enjoyable and uplifting. I recommend.

This is a wonderful Christian western novel! It has been a number of years since I’ve read anything by Gilbert Morris. I had forgotten what a fantastic writer he is. He has created wonderful characters in Lafayette Riordan and Rosa Ramirez. I thoroughly enjoyed his development and presentation of each of them. He also created a fairly large group of supporting characters that were equally well developed. I was quickly drawn into the story and found that I needed to finish the book to find out what happened in their lives. I’m looking forward to reading the other books in this series.

Rosa's Land Ok!!! Its an awesome story line, well developed characters and enough emotion to blow you off!! When I started reading it a few weeks ago, I was desapointed with the book. I honestly thought that this guy - Fayete - is such a ninny that for sure poor Rosa will have to save him and the land all by herself, but i'm a stubborn person so I made myself keep reading it on side, while i read other books as well.  Here is the deal though- once you get to the part where he decides to become a man and experiment things out -ninny Fayete becomes such a hero that has enought witt and quickness about him that he doesnt need muscles to deal with some of the most notorious outlaws. I hated his mom for writing that letter to the judge, especialy because i knew i'm so protective of my son that I would have hurt his reputation in the same way thinking that I'm protecting him. I loved their story with Rosa and their dedication to God. Usually in books its one of the characters that is guyding the other to God but in this one they discover God through a third party - Hannah. I really liked it. When two unbelievers come to God at the same time and learn to follow Him holding hands in their uncertainty each step of the way- its just too sweet.  There is a saying- "behind each man hides a  boy that wants to come out and play" this story is the opposite of that- " behind each boy hides a man that is looking for an opportunity to come out and prove himself".  I defenetly recommend this book especially to those who have sons!!! Because even though this is a romance its much more then just that- it holds a lot of wisdom between the lines. It is only fitting that an author that has eighty-some years in his back pocket wrote it. Thank you Gilbert Morris.

But even seeing this book was "Christian" fiction couldn't get me past page 40. Too slow starting and not well set-up plot. Blech.
