Publisher's Summary


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.

Scarlett O'hara meet Mary Toliver

Leila Meacham, in my opinion, is one of the best writers I have ever read. The complexity of her characters is beautiful and the story a story full of depth.

I couldn't put the book down or should I say take the ear bud out. Truly an amazing book. Even my husband enjoyed listening to it.

A Modern Gone with the Wind

I like to get an audio book thats long in hours and worth the listen and that's what you'll get with Roses. The narration is soothing, with great southern accents and yet well done character voices. The main characters were very believable and I found myself thinking about them until I could get back to my ipod. Overall a very enthralling historical, family "mystery" romance.
