Titans Synopsis

Texas in the early 1900s, its inhabitants still traveling by horseback and barely familiar with the telephone, was on the cusp of an oil boom that, unbeknownst to its residents, would spark a period of dramatic change and economic growth. In the midst of this transformative time in Southern history, two unforgettable characters emerge and find their fates irrevocably intertwined: Samantha Gordon, the privileged heiress to the sprawling Las Tres Lomas cattle ranch near Fort Worth, and Nathan Holloway, a sweet-natured and charming son of a wheat farmer from far north Texas. As changes sweep the rustic countryside, Samantha and Nathan's connection drives this narrative compulsively forward as they love, lose, and betray. In this grand yet intimate novel, Meacham once again delivers a heartfelt, big-canvas story full of surprising twists and deep emotional resonance.

Titans Press Reviews

Emotionally resounding...Texas has never seemed a mammoth human filled with longing and ambition...Meacham's easy-to-read prose helps to maintain a pace that you won't be able to quit, pushing through from chapter to chapter to find the next important nugget of this dramatic family tale. It is best savored over a great steak with a glass of wine and evenings to yourself. --BookReporter Equals and perhaps surpasses Roses...It has everything any reader could want in a book...epic storytelling that plunges the reader headfirst into the plot...[Meacham] is a titan herself. --Jackie K Cooper, Book Critic, The Huffington Post An enthralling stunner....A compelling saga with echoes of Gone with the Wind. --Publishers Weekly (praise for Roses) As large, romantic, and American a tale as Texas itself. --Booklist (praise for Roses) Roses heralded as the new Gone with the Wind. --USA Today (Praise for Roses) A novel about family love and retribution as much as wealth or ambition. What makes Titans successful is how skillfully the author involves readers in the characters' lives, and keeps us reading, as we watch the plot play out. --Historical Novel Society Meacham crafts a grand Texas family epic, by way of Dickens...the explosive plot elements...collide in a satisfying climax...the final paragraph is practically perfection. --Lone Star Literary Life The finest historical fiction not only entertains but teaches readers something about an era not their own, and this novel offers a stellar crash course in Texas history...The novel has it all: a wide cast of characters, pitch-perfect period detail, romance, plenty of drama, and skeletons in the closet (literally). Saga fans will be swooning. --Booklist (starred review) Reads like a high-end Thorn Birds. --Sara Nelson, The Daily Beast (praise for Roses)
