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.

Author Bio:
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.

Susan’s larger than life characters and layered plots have won her acclaim with readers and reviewers alike. A seasoned women’s events and retreats speaker, she’s a popular writing teacher at conferences around the nation and the author of the beginning writer’s workbook: From the Inside-Out: discover, create and publish the novel in you!. She is also the founder, a story-crafting service that helps authors discover their voice.

Susan makes her home in northern Minnesota, where she is busy cheering on her two sons in football, and her daughter in local theater productions (and desperately missing her college-age son!)

My Review:
Susan May Warren has once again brought her readers another OUTSTANDINGLY magnificent story. Set in the gilded age, this is a novel that will sweep you off your feet, and turn you around until you’re dizzy with a smile on your face.

Jinx and Esme are sisters, and daughters of August Price. Told in stories between the two, this book is absolutely beautiful, just like it’s cover. Jinx wanted to be an Heiress and everything that Esme WAS.  Esme wanted to be everything she wasn’t. But, unfortunately for them, it didn’t work out that way. Esme wanted true love, and to follow her dream. Jinx, the younger of the two, wanted a rich and wealthy man and attention raveled all on her in the society.

When the chance for Esme to leave and follow her dream of writing for a paper, she jumps on the chance. She leaves everything behind to start over. But will it really be as simple as that? And, can Jinx really accept the high pressure of being an Heiress in a high societal community?

Those are just two of the many questions that these amazing characters answer for the readers. But, among those questions and more, lies the heart of the story: betrayal, passion, mercy, forgiveness, hope and jealous heartache. God’s guiding grace and never ending love seep through the words that Ms. Warren puts to the pages. A story that will leave you breathless, smiling, and aching all in one sitting. Her words will grip your heart like a vice and keep you turning the pages late into the night, and you’ll reflect on the story long after you’re finish. I highly recommend this to every historical lover out there. It’s 5 Books worthy, and will be on my recommendation list to everyone for a long time to come. I can’t wait to read the second installment to this new suspenseful, romantic, captivating series!
