Overview

His dream awaits. . .

Lafayette Riordan longs for an adventurous life fighting against the West’s worst outlaws. But his gentle upbringing has prepared him for a life as a scholar and artist, not a lawman. Unwilling to give up, Riordan secretly learns to handle firearms and eventually gains a coveted spot with Judge Isaac Parker’s famous marshals—even if it is doing the worst jobs in the Territory.

Rosa Ramirez left the sordid conditions of her home near Amarillo, Texas, for the promise of a new life on her grandfather’s ranch. But she quickly learns that safety is just as precarious on the ranch after a band of outlaws steals her grandfather’s horses and kills one of his men. Rosa rides to Judge Parker and demands protection, but she is livid when she learns that Riordan—the stable boy and dish washer—is the only man available. Far from being the marshal Rosa wanted, Riordan doesn’t even look like he can brandish a pistol.

It’s up to Riordan to convince Rosa otherwise. . .and take hold of his dream of honor and love.

Editorial Reviews

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.
Larik Burci
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.

    Rosas Land

    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.

    Published February 1st 2013 by Barbour Books 320 pages ISBN: 1616267585

    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.

    Normally I Can Read Almost Anything

    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.
