What would you do to have it all?
Heiress weaves a Gilded Age tale of the high cost of power, beauty and love.
SEATTLE -- It's a Gilded Age adaptation of Jacob and Esau: The beautiful and wealthy heiress daughters of August Price can buy almost everything their hearts desire in Susan May Warren's new book Heiress
(Summerside Press). Everything, that is, but love. Coming of age in the glamorous world of the extravagant New York gilded society, these two women discover the lengths they're willing to go to get what they most desire.
The Prices live among the elite set-the Carnegies, the Vanderbilts, and the Astors. These families shined in the reflection of their gold, but under all the glitter simmered stories of adultery, murder, embezzlement, and unrest. The people who had everything were still unsatisfied. The Price sisters, Esme and Jinx, learn there may be something of deeper value they can't purchase with their money and influence. But at what price does this lesson come?
Master storyteller Susan May Warren patterned Heiress
after the story of Jacob and Esau. "I wanted to create two daughters of wealth and power and portray the way each handled the deep longings of their heart," says Warren. "I also wanted to explore what it means to be blessed. It is possible to be blessed in poverty as well as wealth?"
Learn how the Prices came to answer these questions in Heiress,
the first novel in the new Daughters of Fortune series.
