About a year ago, I read Roses by Leila Meacham and absolutely fell in love with the story. So when a friend of mine told me she had another book out, I went right out to get it. And yay! I was not disappointed.
Just like Roses, Tumbleweeds is set is Texas, but this time in the panhandle. The story follows the lives of one young girl and two young boys who form a bond that is beyond friendship. Then the story follows them from middle school up to middle age and how their lives are forever changed by a tragic event when they were in high school.
I love Leila Meacham's writing style and her story telling ability. She has a way of pulling you in and not letting go of you. Her stories also don't have the "happily ever after" type of endings. Which I like...cause not every event wraps itself in a sweet little bow. I think this is a great book and I highly, highly recommend it. It would be a perfect end of summer read. (And if you haven't read Roses...read it too!!!)
