Gone with the Wind meets The Help in the stunning prequel to Leila Meacham's bestselling family epic Roses.

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. Love, marriage, friendship, betrayal, tragedy, and triumph -- all the ingredients that made so many love Roses -- are here, played out against an amazing backdrop of slavery, western expansion, abolition, the Civil War, and American and Texan history.
