Q&A: Susan May Warren (HEIRESS)
How do Esme and Jinx compare to Jacob and
Esme is the older sister "Esau," who "despises" her birthright -– her role as the elder sister and the expectations to marry well. Jinx is the younger "Jacob" who wants nothing more than to step into her sister's shoes. However, Jinx’s life does not turn out as she supposes. I took the themes of Jacob marrying Leah -- thinking it was Rachel -- and of having to wait for love and applied them to Jinx's life as she marries Foster, and then falls for someone else.
lessons do the Price daughters learn that we can apply to our own lives?
That being blessed isn’t about what you have, but in the fact that you are loved by your heavenly Father, and that your life is in His hands.
did you choose the "gilded age"? How is the "gilded age"
The Gilded Age is one of excess and a time when people were coming into vast wealth (while the regular population made very little).The gulf between the rich and the poor widened.However, the high society, despite their wealth, lived turbulent lives, some even committing suicide.If they were “blessed” then why were they so unhappy?This book is a quest for the answer.
this story inspired by true stories?
I read a number of biographies and historical records, so I tried to make it as accurate as I could.However, everything is fiction.
does it mean to be "Blessed"?
There are many “Blessed is he who…” in the Bible.However, I believe all of them come back to that foundational knowledge that seeps through and takes root in a person’s heart, that they are in the hands of a God who loves them.
