Description

Spanning the 20th century, the story of Roses takes place in a small East Texas town against the backdrop of the powerful timber and cotton industries, industries controlled by the scions of the town's founding families. Cotton tycoon Mary Toliver and timber magnate Percy Warwick should have married but unwisely did not, and now must deal with the deceit, secrets, and tragedies of their choice and the loss of what might have been--not just for themselves but for their children, and children's children. With expert, unabashed, big-canvas storytelling, Roses covers a hundred years, three generations of Texans and the explosive combination of passion for work and longing for love.

Praise For Roses

"A compelling East Texas saga with echoes of Gone With the Wind."—Publisher's Weekly

"Roses heralded as new Gone with the Wind."
USA Today

"As large, romantic, and American a tale as Texas itself."—Booklist

"It's been almost 30 years since the heyday of giant epics...but Meacham's
debut might bring them back. Readers who like an old-fashioned saga will
devour this sprawling novel of passion and revenge."—Library Journal

"Like Gone With the Wind, this 600-page multigenerational epic is as gloriously entertaining as it is vast."—People Magazine (four stars)
