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.
If you enjoyed reading Roses by Leila Meacham, I’m sure you will be excited to hear that she has a book coming out this November that will bring us back to their stories…sort of. In Somerset, Meacham takes us on the journey with the original family founders of the Tolivers, Warwicks, and DuMonts en route to Howbutker, Texas. So we will get more of the backstory that was hinted at in Roses!
If you use Netgalley, they have it there too! I already put in my request for it this morning.
Are you looking forward to this book? Isn’t the cover GORGEOUS?!
