  “[A] sprawling novel of passion and revenge. Highly recommended…It’s been almost thirty years since the heyday of giant epics in the grand tradition of Edna Ferber and Barbara Taylor Bradford, but Meacham’s debut might bring them back.”

  —Library Journal (starred review)

  “A high-end Thorn Birds.”


  “I ate this multigenerational tale of two families warring it up across Texas history with the same alacrity with which I would gobble chocolate.”

  —Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of gods in Alabama and Backseat Saints

  “A Southern epic in the most cinematic sense—plot-heavy and historical, filled with archaic Southern dialect and formality, with love, marriage, war, and death over three generations.”

  —Caroline Dworin, “The Book Bench,”

  “This sweeping epic of love, sacrifice, and struggle reads like Gone with the Wind with all the passions and family politics of the South.”

  —Midwest Book Review

  “The kind of book you can lose yourself in, from beginning to end.”

  —Huffington Post

  “Fast-paced and full of passions…This panoramic drama proves evocative and lush. The plot is intricate and gives back as much as the reader can take…Stunning and original, Roses is a must-read.”


  “May herald the overdue return of those delicious doorstop epics from such writers as Barbara Taylor Bradford and Colleen McCullough…a refreshingly nostalgic bouquet of family angst, undying love, and ‘if only’s.”

  —Publishers Weekly

  “Superbly written…a rating of ten out of ten. I simply loved this book.”
