Sobre l'autor

Leila Meacham was born September 7, 1938 in Minden, Louisiana but grew up in Texas. She graduated from North Texas State University with a bachelor's degree of Arts. She married a pilot in the US Air Force during the war years of Viet Nam and served in numerous capacities of volunteer work as a mostra'n més military wife before resuming her teaching career in San Antonio. She taught high school English until her retirement from that profession, developing the gifted and talented program still used in the tenth-grade curriculum. She was twice elected by her peers as Teacher of the Year. Leila Meacham came to her love of writing late, even though she dabbled briefly into the process when she wrote a romance novel in the mid-eighties that she never expected to be published. It was followed by two others because she was under contract, but the experience and genre left her with a desire never to pick up a pen again. However, she soon ran out of things to do after retirement and decided to try writing again. Her bestselling novels include Roses (2010), Tumbleweeds (2012) and Somerset (2013) made The New York Times Best Seller List. Her other books included Titans (2016), Ryan's Hand (1984), Crowning Design (1984), and Aly's House (1985). Dragonfly (2019) was her last novel. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2019 and died on September 19, 2021, at the age of 83. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

The beginning and middle of the book was ok. The last 50 pages or so were filled with silly plot twists, people with amazing memories of the most minor events that occurred 18 years prior and just a lot of far fetched story lines. In summary, HS star football players do stupid things, get away with most (not so far fetched), 3rd side of the triangle is left to pick up the pieces and still some how still holds a flame for the star QB. All a bit too much for me.

This is not historical fiction but rather fantasy. Young Americans who are brave dolts saved by high ranking Nazi who turn on Hitler after having directed the torture of at least scores. (As consolation one savior is a french resistance leader.) I read quite recently that the overwhelming majority of high ranking Nazis were true believers to the end with hundreds committing suicide in the last days. No, not an historical novel but a contribution to the myth of the good German. Of course there were some but few who survived.… (més)

Family saga of a Texas cotton plantation. Story starts in the early 1900’s and finishes today. There were many twists and turns and devastating results on the three families involved in this story.
