Publisher's Summary

One hundred fifty years of Roses' Tolivers, Warwicks, and DuMonts! We begin in the antebellum South on Plantation Alley in South Carolina, where Silas Toliver, deprived of his inheritance, joins up with his best friend Jeremy Warwick to plan a wagon train expedition to the "black waxy" promise of a new territory called Texas. Slavery, westward expansion, abolition, the Civil War, love, marriage, friendship, tragedy and triumph-all the ingredients (and much more) that made so many love Roses so much-are here in abundance.

What the Critics Say

"Meacham sets her tale against the backdrop of historical upheavals, even the Civil War takes a backseat to the Tolivers' domestic dramas full of intrigue and tragedy." (Booklist)
