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."

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.

This book kept me wanting to hear more!

Would you listen to Titans again? Why?

No. I don't care to listening, reading, or watching a second time.<br/>Once is enough.

What about Casey Holloway and Brian Hatch ’s performance did you like?

They were very good. I enjoyed the fact that there were two different people reading. It helped keep me on task of what was happening.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes. When Trevor found out Nathan and Samantha were his children. The excitement he showed when he was ready to introduce them to his mother; also when Nathan told his grandmother that her other son committed suicide and Trevor was keeping the secret for her benefit.

Eric Novel of Texas During Turn of 20th Century


I enjoyed this tale of north central Texas during the late 1800's into the dawn of the 20th century, cattle ranches and oil on the horizon. The story is woven around two twins separated at birth. Neither knows of the existence of the other, but slowly their lives begin to intertwine. Rich characters during interesting times. The narrators missed a few pronunciations, but generally did a good job. Having two narrators helped during this long novel with two sets of characters.

Excellent book but..,,

This was a very good book. Well worth the credit. I'm very glad I read it, but i did not think it was as good as Somerset and Roses.

Great Read

Always a fan of this author! Great story with lots of interesting information on the beginnings of the oil industry. Only critism is the reader's mispronunciation of several words including certain counties in Texas.

Great story!

Would you consider the audio edition of Titans to be better than the print version?

I am sorry to say no. I would have rather read this in print because I didn't care for the narrators at times.

What did you like best about this story?

The story itself. The characters, their lives. The main characters are good people and I loved reading about them, kept rooting for them. It was simply a wonderful story and whenever I had to stop, I couldn't wait to get back to it.

What does Casey Holloway and Brian Hatch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Both narrators seemed to have trouble simply reading the words at times. They seemed very stilted, slow to pronounce the word, maybe because they were putting an accent to it, but it took me out of the flow of the story and I am always sorry when that happens as being able to listen to a great story is always such a treat. I do a great deal of hand work so listening to a book is perfect. Some of their characters sounded great, just so slow at pronunciation I noticed it. Other characters were very shrill and I was glad they didn't have that big a part in the story!

If you could rename Titans, what would you call it?

Great name as it is

Any additional comments?

This was a really great book and hope Ms. Meacham keeps them coming. I am going to read Somerset now, then Roses again. I am looking forward to both.

What would have made Titans better?

The basic idea of this story is intriguing, however in reality it was predictable and laughably cheezy at times.

No one write like Meacham

There are really no words to do this author justice. I started with her first book Roses and I've been her biggest fan since. Just read it. And all of her other titles. You won't be disappointed. Something for everyone!
