Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

I loved this debut novel from this author. I love good historical fiction, and this book certainly fit the description. I can hardly wait to read "Tubleweeds" by the same author.

Loved this book! I usually don't go for pink girly looking books but someone suggested that it was really good. Unlike what I expected it was actually very suspenseful and kept my interest from the beginning. Excellent book, even for those who typically like more thrillers.

A big (609 pages) saga of several generations of two Texas families from the Civil War to the 1980's, their loves, losses and triumphs. A good summer read!!
