Heiress ~ Review

About the Book:
They can buy anything they want—fame, power, beauty, even loyalty.

But they can’t buy love.

The beautiful and wealthy heiress daughters of August Price can buy everything their hearts desire. But what if their desire is to be loved, without an enormous price tag attached? When one sister betrays another for the sake of love, will she find happiness? And what happens when the other sets out across the still untamed frontier to find it—will she discover she’s left it behind in the glamorous world of the New York gilded society? What price will each woman pay for being an heiress?

Set in the opulent world of the Gilded Age, two women discover that being an heiress just might cost them everything they love.

My Review:

Oh Em Gee!! I have been DYING to read a book by Susan May Warren! I am sooo excited that this was my First! WOW! This is an amazing story of two Sisters, Esme and Jinx. Two Sisters who couldn't be any more different from one another, even if they tried!
Jinx is the youngest and wishes very much for the privileges of the oldest child. She is quite jealous of her sister. Jinx longs to be a part of High Society, and to marry a wealthy man and receive all that comes with that.

Esme, desires exactly the opposite! She would love to follow in her Fathers footsteps and become a female journalist for his Paper. Esme is beautiful and full of grace, and longs to marry for nothing less than love. However, being an Heiress, she must be married off to the highest bidder.

Will their hopes and desires come true? Do they both find love and more importantly do they learn to love one another without any judgment or jealousy?

Heiress is a book that shares very clearly what happens when we follow after our sinful desires. In the face of adultery, rebellion, and betrayal, the Sisters take a journey that will separate them and then years later reunite them.

Susan May Warren takes us on such a journey in Heiress. The lessons are powerful, and I was drawn in from the beginning! I will be HIGHLY RECOMMENDING this one!
