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.

Re: Tumbleweeds

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 glad I bought it!
