Young Billie Ames naively fell for the exciting pilot Moss Coleman at the Philadelphia Navy Yard during World War II. Within a few months she was pregnant, married, and traveling across the country to Austin…to the 250,000-acre spread known as Sunbridge and into the tantalizing world of the Texas rich. In a vast land dominated by the industrious Colemans, Billie fights to maintain control of her life and her marriage. This is the captivating story of four generations. There’s Moss, living in the shadow of a father whose obsession with power overshadows the needs of his only son; Jessica, the doomed mother who gave up everything to become the perfect Coleman wife; Moss and Billie’s children, desperately trying to live up to the insurmountable expectations; and the grandchildren, heirs to a tarnished empire who just might fulfill their dreams. Most of all this is the triumphant story of Billie Ames Coleman, a woman of courage and strength who holds them all together – in a tale as magnificent as the land that inspired it.

    " This is the book that started the Texas series. which lead to the Veags series and the Kentucky series. All following the same characters; Multi-generations. I loved all of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorraine | 2/7/2014

    " An interesting read of family dynamics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 2/1/2014

    " I can't tell you completely how I feel about this book. I loved,loved, loved the ending of it, when Moss' dream comes together, plus Billie and Thad finally get married, but the begining I had mixed emotions about the characters. I'm the kind who loves a strong women, and Billie deffantly wasn't strong. She let her mom make all the decisions for her, and she let Moss push her around, and if that wasn't bad enough, Moss' dad hated her and treated her like she was skum on the bottom of his chore boots. It took her way to long to stand up for what she wanted, but she finally did it, and stuck with it almost completely. A good start to the series, the rest of the series is much better than the first, which is odd for me because I almost always like the first book of a series the best, but not everything fits the mold. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krista | 10/24/2013

    " I thought it was going to be better. It was really long and not a lot of 'page-turning drama.' I borrowed the whole series from the library but I won't be reading the other three. Just not enough there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bobbi | 7/14/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 10/2/2012

    " A very good read about a naive young girl who marries a rich Texan. What follows are years of heartbreak and a scewed up family life. Very entertaing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mendy | 7/28/2012

    " As far as fiction/romance novels, this was pretty good. Kind of a slow start, but I got "wrangled" in after the first 100 pages or so. I enjoyed the multi generational stories embedded within the larger story. Very sad and depressing though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen S | 5/15/2012

    " I loved and enjoyed this whole series....great books "

    " really good book for the first half, I didnt finish because the end was more of the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Niketa | 1/13/2012

    " Like reading a soap opera script--light, trashy, cheesy as hell at times. Take it with you in the tub on a lazy day. I did. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patti | 6/14/2011

    " This was just a chick book - really light reading. Romance involving a wealthy Texas family and all the tangle dynamics. I picked it up in audio format on a discount shelf for $5 and it was worth it. Good entertainment as I commuted to and from town. Not quality fiction, but just kind of fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin Mooney | 3/5/2011

    " The best romance, family saga series I have ever read. "

    " Mmmmmm! I enjoyed Fern Michael's Kentucky series so much -- now as I've just finished Texas Rich in tears -- I can't wait to get into the next of the Texas series. 4 of these instead of the 3 in "Kentucky" -- sounds good to me! "
