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.

Listened to it on preloaded audiobook (Playaway) - not worth the time it took.
Probably won't be reading any more by Lila Meacham.

Let me begin by saying that I absolutely loved Roses by Leila Meacham. I also enjoyed Titans, so figured I would start Tumbleweeds. Oh my goodness. What a disappointment! This novel was in a similar vein to Roses and even Titans in the fact that there is family drama set in Texas. There is a love triangle and many misunderstandings, but at least in the other novels, the misunderstandings were believable! This entire story was so far fetched and the most disappointing aspect of all had to do with the fact that as soon as these main characters were faced with moral dilemmas, they immediately chose the wrong path and from there on out, covered everything up with lies. I am also supposed to believe that some sort of immaculate conception took place, to explain one of the misunderstandings? I'm disappointed in the lazy writing. What good is a plot twist if it's so unbelievable? Meacham has done so much better.

I enjoyed this book. Turns out I have read it before, but I read it again and enjoyed it the second time as well. One of the reviews said it reminded them of "Thornbirds" and it truly did. Not as good as "Roses" but good nevertheless.

Better than Meacham's first novel, "Roses." There were some unexpected twists towards the end.
