Giveaway - Roses by Leila Meacham

To celebrate the release of Roses by Leila Meacham today, I have five hardcover copies to giveaway courtesy of Miriam at Hachette Book Group.

I read and loved Roses this past month. If you love historical fiction and an epic love story that spans the twentieth century, you will love Roses. My original review is posted here.

Book Description (From Publisher):
Spanning the 20th century, the story of Roses takes place in a small East Texas town against the backdrop of the powerful timber and cotton industries, industries controlled by the scions of the town's founding families. Cotton tycoon Mary Toliver and timber magnate Percy Warwick should have married but unwisely did not, and now must deal with the deceit, secrets, and tragedies of their choice and the loss of what might have been--not just for themselves but for their children, and children's children.
