    1. Twenty-year-old artist Lafayette Riordan, known as Faye, decides to leave New York and become a marshal in Indian territory after a failed love affair. The blurb then says, “When faced with the opportunity to realize his dream, can he summon the courage to hunt down the outlaws? Or will one headstrong female rancher capture his heart first?”. Well, this is Christian historical romance, so you can probably work out the answers yourself.I found Rosa’s Land very hard to get in to, which was [...]

    2. 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 "is 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."

    4. If you like Louis L'Amour western novels (I do like his novels)you will like this novel. This book could be classified as a western novel, Christian romance or just lite reading. I found it relaing reading.

    5. Faye lived a pampered life at home learning to be a painter. His mom spoiled him, bringing him up to be slightly more feminine than his rough around the edges father raised his older brothers.

    6. Title: Rosa’s Land (Western Justice #1)Author: Gilbert MorrisPages: 318Year: 2013Publisher: Barbour Publishing, Inc. I have read some of this author’s mysteries and have enjoyed them quite a bit, but I had never read any of Gilbert Morris’ westerns. When this book was published, I decided to read this first book in a new series, “Western Justice”. Portions of the story take place in Texas, New York and Oklahoma when it was still Indian Territory. The year is 1886, and the two main char [...]

    8. 4 starsI 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 h [...]

    9. ROSA’S LAND is the first installment in the Western Justice series by Gilbert Morris. If you enjoy the old west coupled with romance, this is a series for you. Though the cadence in Gilbert Morris’ writing is a bit unique, with the book broken up into four different sections, it was a quirk I was willing to overlook because the characters drew me in.Lafayette Riordan is a consummate momma’s boy. Raised by his mother to be an artist and student, he is nothing like his tough and ready brothe [...]

    10. Faye Riordan has always been his mother's child, a sensitive painter ridiculed by his father and brothers who are cold businessmen. After getting his heart bruised by his first love, Riordan wants to show his mettle as a US Marshal. But Riordan has little experience and much to prove, will he be able to rise to the challenge and bring in the most infamous outlaws of all? I've been reading Gilbert Morris books since I was about eleven years old, and no matter how old I get I don't think that I'll [...]

    11. Rosa's LandOk!!! 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 desappointed 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 m [...]

    12. 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 a [...]

    13. Rosa's Land is a Christian Novel set in the Old West and Indian Territory. Lafayette "Faye" Riordan is the youngest of three boys who was raised to be a gentle man who didn't fight. His two brothers and father were tough, hard, ruthless businessmen and they made fun of Faye for being an artistic painter. After a short courtship with a woman, she tells Faye she doesn't want to ruin him and tells him to forget her. This sets in motion Faye's determination to prove that he is a man and sets off to [...]

    14. Lafayette Riordan, or “Faye,” as his family lovingly calls him, is tired of being known as the baby of the family. Always the weak one, Faye is ready to be a man. Only trained in art, he is brutally beat up while trying to be chivalrous. It is then he decides to lay down his paintbrush, and instead take up a gun. He proceeds to train himself to be a US Marshall, never realizing how much his life would change. I thought this book was unbelievably good. From the descriptions, to the characters [...]

    15. 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 [...]

    16. 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 inte [...]

    17. I really wanted to like this book. But I found it plodding, mechanical, with far too much explanation to help the "clueless" reader along. It felt very amateur to me, so I was surprised when I glanced at the description again and saw that the author is experienced and award winning. That did not come across in this book.The characters were flat and often illogical. Faye's skills were unrealistic and I just couldn't swallow them. I'm going to stop there and not list all the things that bugged me. [...]

    18. Faye feels like the outsider in his family. His brothers seem to be tougher than him and while he is a talented artist , he feels like something is missing . He finally believes that he has found is answer. To become a Marshall in the west. Little does he known that this choice is destined to change his life forever. Rosa's hard experiences with men have left a bitter taste in her mouth . She is very suspicious of Riordan when he is assigned to protect her family from a band of outlaws, however [...]

    19. 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 w [...]

    20. Rosa's Land is the first book I've read by Gilbert Morris. The story is set mostly in the west where there is fighting between the native Indians and the white man. Lafayette Riordon leaves his comfortable life in the east in search of adventure. The story is well written and easy to read. My only complaint is that it contains a lot of religion and I didn't enjoy this aspect. But I recommend it for its good story.

    21. I was very interested in this book when I read the synopsis, because it looked like the story had a bit of everything: adventure, romance, wild west Unfortunately, the story fell flat. It has it all, but not in a good way. Stilted dialogue, one-dimensional characters, and a choppy style ruined for me a plot that had some really promising (and unfortunately undeveloped) aspects. This book could have been so much better. Very disappointed.

    22. This book is full of examples to explain the whole "show me, don't tell me" principle. Don't TELL me how people are feeling, SHOW me! Don't TELL me what happened like it's a laundry list, SHOW me! The plot was a great idea but I never connected with any of the characters because I was told everything like a news article instead of drawn into their motives, feelings, struggles. A clean read, but not much else to recommend it.

    23. I had writing bad reviews, but I'm pretty sure that this one deserves one. It was an awkward book to read where the author doesn't know how to use any descriptive words other than "he said, she said". I think the story line was acceptable, but the writing as a novelist needed the most help. And I'm going to keep that review short for sake of not wanting to be too harsh.

    24. This was my first Morris novel. I was a little disappointed. I expected a little more drama and a little more love story. She doesn't know me or my son or that he rgularly naps for 3 hours and that this is a stubbornness issue not an issue of wether or not he needs sleep. And there was too much back story. I'll try one more of his novels but after that, I won't waste my time.

    25. The characters were flat. The story wasn't very exciting. The dialogue was dreadful.I've read other books that Morris has written and they weren't so bad. Some of the books he's cowritten are among my favorites. This one…nope.

    26. This book did not hold my interest. I only got three chapters in. Faye was quite a bit too bland, and the reiteration of how much his dad was a tough guy but gave into his wife because she was a good wife in everything else? Just gave everything an air of trying too hard.
