In the first of this Texas series, Texas Rich, we meet an intriguing heroine, Billie Ames. She's young, beautiful and when she meets Moss Coleman, a dashing pilot she's a goner. They met in Philadelphia, at the Navy Yard, during World War II. Once married her home will be a far cry from what she has known - she moves to a gigantic ranch in Texas.

There's more for her to learn than ranch life - she must also come up with ways to retain her individuality and raise her children as she sees fit among the overpowering Coleman clan. Moss, too, has his work cut out for him as his father is a domineering man whose aphrodisiac is power, his mother is a shadow.

Texas Rich spans four generations, it's a spellbinding saga, every bit as large as its setting.

Long story of a family, over many generations. Interesting and shows money isn't everything. I enjoyed the characters and the story line. I wanted the true hearts to join much sooner.

This is a story in which one can completely lose one's self. For 2 days, I was absorbed in the Coleman family and actually felt for them. I've ordered the next two in the series.

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 Ausitn, to a 250,000 acre spread called Sunbridge, and into the world of the TEXAS RICH.

THIS IS THE 1ST BOOK IN THE COLEMAN FAMILY SAGA AND IT IS GREAT!

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.

This supremely entertaining novel is the story of four generations of the Colemans of Texas--of Moss and his father. Seth, obsessed with power, with airplanes, and with building a dynasty...Of Seth's wife, Jessica, who molded herself into the kind of woman Seth wanted...Of Moss and Billie's children, who have trouble living up to the family's expectations...Of their grandchildren, who just might fulfill all of their dreams. It is the story, too, of Agnes Ames, who takes to wealth and power like she was born to it, and of Thad Kingsley, Moss's best friend, who secretly loves Billie. Most of all, it is the story of Billie herself and her struggle to become her own person in a world dominated by Colemans.
