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.
From the Publisher:
Having not married in spite of their true feelings, cotton tycoon Mary Toliver and timber magnate Percy Warwick struggle with deceit, secrets and tragedies that challenge their children and grandchildren in their small east Texas community. A first novel. Reissue. A best-selling book.
Annotation:
An epic multi-generational tale set in a small East Texas town, ROSES follows the consequences of a doomed romance between the town's two wealthiest figures, cotton plantation owner Mary Toliver and lumber baron Percy Warwick, and vividly portrays how the choices these star-crossed lovers made in the early years of the 20th century have continued to haunt their children and grandchildren.

Praise

"This enthralling stunner, a good old-fashioned read, may herald the overdue return of those delicious doorstop epics from such writers as Barbara Taylor Bradford and Colleen McCullough." 10/26/2009
