From the New York Times bestselling author of Roses comes "epic storytelling that plunges the reader headfirst" into the fate of heiress Samantha Gordon and ranch hand Nathan Holloway as their lives collide in early 1900s Texas. (Jackie K Cooper, The Huffington Post)
Texas in the early 1900s was on the cusp of an oil boom that, unbeknownst to its residents, would spark a period of dramatic changes and economic growth. In the midst of this transformative time in Southern history, two unforgettable characters emerge and find their fates irrevocably intertwined: Samantha Gordon, the privileged heiress to the sprawling Las Tres Lomas cattle ranch near Fort Worth, and Nathan Holloway, a sweet-natured and charming farm boy from far north Texas.
As changes sweep the rustic countryside, Samantha and Nathan's connection drives this narrative compulsively forward as they love, lose, and betray. In this grand yet intimate novel, Meacham once again delivers a heartfelt, big-canvas story full of surprising twists and deep emotional resonance.
Great, Great book. Leila Meacham did a wonderful job of keeping the characters together as well as the mystery. I couldn't put the book down. Highly recommend!
Loved the ending! Fell in love with the main characters! Did not love this book as much as Somerset or Roses but still wonderful. A little hard to keep track of all the characters and how they fit in the story, lots of backtracking so try to follow along closely! Great ending though! If you have a blended family, crazy family, or heck just a family then you'll love this book. But definitely read Somerset then Roses!!!!!
