Young Billie Ames was naive but a real knockout when she met Moss Coleman at the Philadelphia Navy Yard during World War II. Within a few months she was pregnant and married to him. It was a marriage that brought Billie--and her mother, Agnes--across the country to Austin, to a 250,000-acre spread called Sunbridge, and into the world of the Texas rich. Billie works to acclimate to Texas and her new home at Sunbridge, her role as Moss' wife, and the challenges she faces from her social-climbing mother, her gruff and demanding father-in-law, and the events of the world around her. We see Billie grow stronger in heart, mind, and belief as her children are born, her marriage to Moss changes, and she comes into her own as a Coleman--and a woman in her own right.

I absolutely love this book and have read it several times. Having been born and raised in Texas is what most likely drew me to this story. I found it years ago on the shelf in my childhood home and with my mom's permission started reading it. I was instantly in love. It reads like an episode of the TV series "Dallas" and I can't help but wonder if the characters were written with that show in mind. This isn't a put down at all, but a compliment. This is the first book in a Texas Trilogy of which I have read all three. My advice is to definitely read them in order because the second one continues where the first one ends and so forth. I love epic books like this and I really wish that someone would turn these into a mini-series because I would love to see how this trilogy would unfold on screen.
