The Yellow Rose: A Novel of the Texas Revolution, co-authored by Carl R. Brush and Bob Stewart, is an engrossing historical work that captures the spirit and essence of one of the most significant events in the history of Texas. This well-researched and vividly detailed account of the Texas Revolution focuses particularly on the role played by Emily Morgan, also known as the "Yellow Rose of Texas." Set in the early 1830s, when Texas was still part of Mexico and tensions were rising between the Mexican government and American settlers, the authors introduce the key players, including Sam Houston and James Bowie, while also painting a detailed portrait of Emily Morgan. As a free woman of color captured by Mexican soldiers, Emily becomes a pawn in their efforts to defeat the Texan rebels. The novel suggests that Emily and Sam became romantically involved as they collaborated in the struggle for Texas independence. This compelling storyline adds an interesting and romantic element to the narrative.
Carl R. Brush and Bob Stewart's The Yellow Rose is an excellent novel that will appeal to anyone with an interest in Texas history or the American West. The book is engaging and informative, providing a fascinating glimpse into a pivotal moment in American history. What sets this novel apart from other historical novels is its attention to detail and accuracy. The authors did their research, and the book is filled with authentic details about life in Texas in the 1830s, from the clothing and food to the weapons and tactics used in battle. The descriptions of the battles themselves are particularly vivid and well-written, transporting readers right into the middle of the action. This is a highly recommended read for those who enjoy historical fiction, and romance or are simply interested in learning more about the Texas Revolution.
