Just maybe the grass isn’t always greener…

Heiress (Daughters of Fortune)Heiress By: Susan May Warren

Esme and Jinx have grown up in a time full of debutantes, fancy parties, and the main goal of keeping yourself on the society page of the paper.  As the eldest daughter, Esme is expected to marry a man of fortune, a marriage of convenience to uphold the family status; however, Esme believes she is destined for more, she wants to see her byline on the front page of the paper. Her younger sister Jinx dreams of becoming a debutante, of attending balls and fulfilling her role and is angry at Esme for wanting to throw all her birthright has given her away.

We all have those moments when we truly believe that we know what we are supposed to do, and the constraints that society, our friends, family, and ourselves have placed upon us rule our decisions. Esme and Jinx must decide if what they dream of, or what everyone else dreams of for them is the right thing.

Susan May Warren has crafted an amazing, intense story surrounding the gilded age and all that happened within, although everyone on the outside saw their lifestyle as perfect, and that they had everything they ever wanted.  Warren’s characters are full of life and keep you coming back for more. Warren has a way of pulling you into a book and keeping you to the very end, where just maybe Esme and Jinx will realize that what is expected from the world or from yourself, is not what God may have planned.


I was provided a complimentary copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for an honest review. The Opinions expressed are all my own.
