Publisher's Summary

A sweeping new drama from the beloved, best-selling author of Roses.

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 changes 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 farm boy 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 audiobook, Meacham once again delivers a heartfelt, big-canvas story full of surprising twists and deep emotional resonance.

Great story, especially if you are from Texas and love the land.

As I said, a very easy and delightful listen as far as the story goes. However, narrators, like good actors, should do their researched. Countless mispronunciations. No one in Texas calls Bexar County Bex-are". It's "bear." I thought I would die when they called Herefords "heer-fords". It's Hur-furds, repeatedly! Dang. If you want to write about our state, learn how Texans say things. Was there no editor on the audio production? Casey and Brian are clearly,"not from these parts."

B+ for this one

I have recently discovered Leila Meacham’s books, starting out with her best, I think, “Roses”. That and “Somerset”, the prequel, are 4 star listens. This selection, “Titans”, was good enough for an audible credit, however it did drag at times throughout. Narration kept me interested enough to finish, since there are two narrators.

Titans

The content of this book was great and held our interest to the end.
The readers sounded like childrens voices.

Texas soap opera

Exactly…this is a Texas soap opera, set against the backdrop of the early days of discovering oil. This is not intended as disparagement; there is some interesting history worked into the story and with all the drama of a soap opera storyline, the book is entertaining. But the characters are just ridiculous, so superficial and one-dimensional.

Great Book!

My sister and I recently discovered Author. We have read all off her books and thoroughly enjoyed each of them. Titans was excellent, the story was great, just when you thought you knew she was going she switched it up and thickened the plot. the performance was also great, the readers held my attenton from start to finish. GET THIS BOOK! you won't regret it.

Trite and contrived

The story line had so much promise, but a lack of communication among all the characters made it drag. The narrators were ok for the most part, but the male narrator for Trevor and his grandmother were horrid.

Enjoyable but long

The plot was great and I enjoyed it. But the story was way longer than it needed to be. At times conversions or story points were repeated from someone else’s point of view, but didn’t add to the story. That caused the story to drag at times. It seemed like the writer wanted to make sure everyone understood, as if we couldn’t figure out what was going on!!!
I had to put the story away at times because I got tired of hearing the same thing over and over. But I was invested in the plot and wanted to know how things worked out. I did eventually finish and I’m glad I did.
Narrators were fantastic. Characters pulled me in.

I felt a bit led by the nose...

The book spells out the storyline repetitively. The reader never gets the theatrical climax one hopes for in a family saga. There is just too much explanation prior to any event to keep excitement in the story.
