The extraordinary novel that introduces the unforgettable Coleman family—and the brilliant heroine who began a powerful American dynasty
 
Young Billie Ames naively fell for the exciting pilot Moss Coleman at the Philadelphia Navy Yard during World War II. Within a few months she was pregnant, married, and traveling across the country to Austin . . . to the 250,000-acre spread known as Sunbridge and into the tantalizing world of the Texas rich. In a vast land dominated by the industrious Colemans, Billie fights to maintain control of her life and her marriage.
 
This is the captivating story of four generations. There’s Moss, living in the shadow of a father whose obsession with power overshadows the needs of his only son; Jessica, the doomed mother who gave up everything to become the perfect Coleman wife; Moss and Billie’s children, desperately trying to live up to insurmountable expectations; and the grandchildren, heirs to a tarnished empire who just might fulfill their dreams. Most of all this is the triumphant story of Billie Ames Coleman, a woman of courage and strength who holds them all together—in a tale as magnificent as the land that inspired it.

From the Back Cover:

“A big, rich book in every way, rich in characterization, rich in plot, and rich in emotion. I think Fern Michaels has struck oil with this one.”
–PATRICIA MATTHEWS

“A steaming, sprawling saga . . . As always, Fern Michaels writes a full story with bigger-than-life characters we would look forward to meeting. . . . A rags-to-riches saga that would make a colorful movie.”
Romantic Times

“Talk about action! There is more in this epic than in five novels. And it’s fascinating, interesting, and exciting. One of those rare books, the kind the reader doesn’t want to end. A real winner!”
Green Bay Press Gazette

“Fine fare for Fern Michaels’s fans!”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

From the Inside Flap:

The first in Fern Michaels' best-selling Texas series, TEXAS RICH introduces us to passionately compelling Billie Ames. Young Billie 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.
