Susan May Warren's Heiress ~ Reviewed
By Susan May Warren
Published by Summerside Press
The beautiful heiress daughters of newspaper magnate August Pierce have been given everything their hearts desire. But what if they want only to be loved—without an enormous price tag attached?
When one daughter pursues a desirable marriage, she secures for herself a comfortable and glamorous life. But among the duties of privilege, will she find the happily-ever-after she seeks? Her sister rejects the trappings of wealth, choosing instead to build a new life on the still-untamed frontier. Will independence bring happiness, or has she left her heart behind in New York's glittering society?
Set in the opulent world of the Gilded Age, each woman discovers that being an heiress just might cost her everything—including the chance for true love.
Susan May Warren took a bold step with this novel and one I applaud. Gripping, this imaginative tale will leave you turning pages without pause. With unexpected twists and masterful storytelling, Warren has penned one of her best novels to date.
