I read this book several years ago when it first came out. It stayed with me over the years and I read the books that followed. (The Clayborn Brides and Come the Spring.) The entire group of books were so moving. I loaned For The Roses to a friend and never got it back, so I ordered another copy from Alibris. The book was still so touching. I found myself laughing and crying. I loved this book. I will make sure and keep this copy so I can read it again. This is definitely a keeper. All of Julie Garwood's books are my favorites, but the Clayborns really touched my heart.
