Editorial Reviews


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. (Rhonda Laney Read A Lot Rhonda 2013-02-17)

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.
(Samantha Kinkade My Book Addictions 2013-03-19)

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. (Larik Burci 2013-04-11)

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.

This book is about a young man, Lafayette Riordan, living the good life in New York City in 1886. His father, Caleb, and two older brothers are rough, tough businessmen and when the he was born, Eileen, told her husband "...this son is going to be mine. I'll make all the decisions about his school, his clothes. I'll raise him to be a gentleman. You got our two other sons, and you've made them hard, callous men." So, you see that young "Faye" as she started calling him had no chance but to be a born and bred "mama's boy".

Eventually, he did get some backbone in him and learn to ride a horse (a very old, gentle horse) and shoot a gun (small enough for him to handle) and he even took off on an outdoor adventure for a month to see if he could survive in the woods all by himself. And he did just that. He finally decides he wants to go out west and become a US Marshal, of all things, and he does go with his mom's blessings, ha!. Little did he know that she wrote to Judge Isaac Parker, who was over the marshall's, asking him "When my son comes to ask you to make him part of your force, agree to take him but give him the most humiliating, dirtiest job you can possibly think of. Keep him at it, and I'm sure in a short time he'll become discouraged and change his mind." But Faye didn't. But I'll tell you, Faye, was just a little bit too good. He was happy and never complained and did all the dirty work and it was just unbelievable. Finally, in Chapter 7, we finally meet Rosa, from Mexico, and she moved to Texas to help her uncle and extranged father with their ranch. Eventually, Faye and Rosa meet and not to give too many "spoilers" I won't say anything else.

I was very disappointed in this book and really could not believe Gilbert Morris wrote it.

I have heard good things about Gilbert Morris's books and when I got the chance to read and review Rosa's Land, I was excited to see what his writing was like. Unfortunately, this was not a good introduction to his writing.

Rosa's Land tells the story of Lafayette, better known as Faye. Faye has grown up hardly knowing a hard day of work. He is better at scholarly things and art. When he is snubbed by a woman, he believes he must become a man and so he heads west to become a Marshall.
Rosa and her family have just moved to her grandfather's ranch and are now having trouble with outlaws. When they request a Marshall, Faye is the Marshall that shows up to help protect their ranch.

The storyline was ok. Westerns are not my favorite genre so perhaps that was part of the reason I didn't like this book. But despite a book's genre, I still have things that I like or don't like about every story. This book had a lot that I didn't like. Rosa was annoying. I didn't feel like the characters were developed well. A lot of the time, characters can become my friends, but these characters were not like that at all and I was only glad to say goodbye to them. I found myself rushing through this book so I could be done with it.
While I may try a few other books from Gilbert Morris, I will not be reading any more of this series.

I received a free ecopy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. I received no compensation for this review, but was only required to share my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions stated are my own.

I have read many Gilbert Morris books and have enjoyed every one of them. I am just beginning this and I found that on page 43, he writes that the main character, Faye, while visiting an art gallery, he remarks, "I heard that President Roosevelt admired this painting, but didn't buy it." If this story takes place in 1886, Grover Cleveland was President, not Roosevelt. I've gone back and thumbed through what I have read and didn't find a "fast forward." Did I miss something? If this is a mistake, I am disappointed by the error.

Lafayette is the last son and not at all like his father and brothers. Deciding to make a name for himself he heads out west to become a marshal. What he encounters is hardly what he expected, but it could just change his life.

Rosa joins her family in a move to her grandfather's ranch. His health is failing and he hopes his family can save his ailing ranch. Rosa takes his request seriously and begins to learn everything she can about the ranch.

It has been a long time since I've read anything by Morris. I remember really liking his books so was looking forward to this one. The plot was interesting. The characters had some unique traits. But for some reason the story felt forced. It wasn't really something I could put my finger on and left me wondering if my memory of his other books was a bit faulty. I enjoyed the story, but this wasn't his best work. I'm willing to check out the next one in hopes for a bit of improvement.

I received this story free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.

The author of this book is well known. I thought because he is a best seller that I would love the book and not want to put it down. I was so disappointed! I gave this book 4/5 stars. I thought the story was very slow, had too many descriptions and the characters were not very likable. I did enjoy the setting of the book and thought some of the minor characters were actually very interesting. On the other hand, the main characters of Lafayette and Rosa where just not that fascinating. Their interactions were not entertaining at all. All that said, you may enjoy it more than me so don't let my opinion stop you from reading it!

I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
