Roses | Leila Meacham
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.

I‘ve never heard of this author before, but the cover caught my attention, and the blurb caught my interest. Ended up spurlging on buying this at Costco!

Has anyone read this?

Crazeedi Not read, but sounds good! 4mo
Hazel0303 I‘ve had this on my list for a year when I discovered it for the first time as well. The page count is pretty big so that has been the reason I have held off. Looking forward to seeing what you think! 4mo
JacqMac I really liked it. My mom borrowed it and really liked it, too. 4mo

LibrarianRyan Yes. It‘s a saga and that is about all the author writes. And almost everyone I know who read it loves it. 4mo
Kimberlone @Hazel0303 i will definitely post about it when I get to reading it! 4mo

I have mixed feelings about book art, but these #roses are really pretty. This is a neat idea for a bride who is a big reader! If a book is old and can't be read anymore, then making their pages into art gives them new life. #literarylove @vkois88 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful 🌹 10mo
vkois88 I'm the same way! I can't stand most of it bc it hurts my heart... but these really are pretty 10mo
MallenNC @vkois88 I‘m thinking these pages were printed for this purpose. That‘s what I‘ve decided at least. 10mo
vkois88 That's what I've decided I'd do it if I were to do ever do book art... copy the page and use that 10mo

A Southern epic filled with love, marriage, war and death that spans over three generations. I devoured this book the way I would devour chocolate, I highly recommend reading it.

I love the stories Meacham wove of love, loss, and redemption! Spanning several generations, she created a space for me to escape reality and jump back in time to when cotton was king in East Texas.

I recently moved back to Texas and started this book set in Texas. I bought a couple Texas wines. I finished one bottle and I am hoping to enjoy more of the book and some more wine.
