Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

A USA Today bestseller

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. Here 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. Like herself, they are orphans—with whom she forms a friendship and an 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, Tumbleweeds will have listeners hanging on every word, desperate to discover how it all plays out.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Readers of Leila Meacham’s Roses have waited two years for this soulful new fiction. Clear eyes; full hearts; can’t lose.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Meacham’s second sprawling novel is as large as Texas itself. The author skillfully manipulates multiple themes of friendship, loss, guilt, and the possibility of redemption. Readers who love epic sagas that span a couple of generations will enjoy this soap opera tale of young love, betrayal, and living a life that might not have a happy ending.” Library Journal
“Meacham’s latest is of a piece with her past work, and sure to find an eager audience among romance buffs.” Kirkus Reviews
