Here's the blurb:
Spanning the 20th century, the story of Roses takes place in a small East Texas town against the backdrop of the powerful timber and cotton industries, industries controlled by the scions of the town's founding families. Cotton tycoon Mary Toliver and timber magnate Percy Warwick should have married but unwisely did not, and now must deal with the deceit, secrets, and tragedies of their choice and the loss of what might have been—not just for themselves but for their children, and children's children. With expert, unabashed, big-canvas storytelling, Roses covers a hundred years, three generations of Texans and the explosive combination of passion for work and longing for love.
When I was in the shops the other day, I saw the Australian (and perhaps elsewhere, not sure) cover and I was a little surprised by how different it is to the US cover:
Normally I would have said that the cover on the right would have been more suggestive of the content of the book, and that the cover on the left would have been more generic, but for some reason this time I find myself liking the US cover better. What about you? Which cover would you rather be seen reading?
