Contemporary Women's Fiction
Three friends from a small Texas town that thrives on Friday
night football games try to move on after a fateful event
colors each of their futures.
Recently orphaned, eleven-year-old Cathy Benson feels she
has been dropped into a cultural and intellectual wasteland
when she is forced to move from her academically privileged
life in California to the small town of Kersey in the Texas
Panhandle where the sport of football reigns supreme. She is
quickly taken under the unlikely wings of up-and-coming
gridiron stars and classmates John Caldwell and Trey Don
Hall, orphans like herself, with whom she forms a friendship
and eventual love triangle that will determine the course of
the rest of their lives.
Taking the three friends through their growing up years
until their high school graduations when several tragic
events uproot and break them apart, the novel expands to
follow their careers and futures until they reunite in
Kersey at forty years of age. Told with all of Meacham's
signature drama, unforgettable characters, and plot twists,
readers will be turning the pages, desperate to learn how it
all plays out.

This was such a good book. Being from West Texas, I know about the football in small towns. I gave this book to my local library so others could read it. A good book to buy for a gift.

I loved this book so much, couldn't put it down! I am of the exact same age as the 3 main characters, so could relate well. Its a page turner. I cannot wait to go get Roses. I only saw this book on a discount isle at B&N and it looked good....so glad I bought it!
