Tumbleweeds

A Novel

The bestselling, epic storytelling of Roses meets the moving drama of Friday Night Lights in this heartrending story of three friends who forge a lifelong bond against the backdrop of a Texas town’s passion for football.

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. Here 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. Like herself, they are orphans-with whom she forms a friendship and an 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, TUMBLEWEEDS will have readers turning the pages, desperate to discover how it all plays out.

Wind."—Publishers Weekly
