Heiress by Susan May Warren


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.

I am not sure why Heiress is marketed as Christian fiction.
Perhaps Heiress earned the label ‘Christian,’ because desperate prayers are whispered heavenward and church attendance is socially required.

But after reading only one-third of the book, I wondered why I continued turning the pages. The story is full of lust, lies, adultery, anger, disrespect, and abuse, and I was very disappointed – perhaps disgusted would be closer to the truth. I flipped nearer to the end of the book to see if things got any better. I am sad to say that the ungodly topics were still rampant.

If the story *does* conclude in a godly manner, I was not willing to wade through the filth to find out.

I know Susan May Warren has written many books (of which I have not read), but if Heiress is indicative of her style and subject matter, I do not want to pick up another. Unfortunately, Heiress will not be remaining on my shelf, and I do not recommend it at all.

That's what I thought. Click HERE to see what other reviewers are saying about Heiress.
