Book Review: Heiress

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.

Read an excerpt here.

About Susan: 

Susan May Warren is an award-winning, best-selling author of over twenty-five novels, many of which have won the Inspirational Readers Choice Award, the ACFW Book of the Year award, the Rita Award, and have been Christy finalists. After serving as a missionary for eight years in Russia, Susan returned home to a small town on Minnesota’s beautiful Lake Superior shore where she, her four children, and her husband are active in their local church.

My Opinion
As I have said before, my favorite book genre is historical fiction and one of my favorite authors of this genre is Susan May Warren!

She always writes such amazing and romantic stories and I can never put them down!

Heiress is no different! I love the story of the two heiress sisters and their two distinct and significantly different personalities! I was definitely drawn to Esme, the older daughter, who doesn't want to follow the typical heiress lifestyle, marry for money, and be a housewife and mother. I really loved that she wanted to make a difference in the world and marry for LOVE!

And of course, I loved the historical references to the real, rich and famous people of that time period like the Astors, Vanderbilts, and others!

I recommend Heiress for all historical and romance book lovers! This is a great story of two sisters who venture out in the world with very different goals...and, of course, there is a great underlying romance involved too! :)
