BarbVirginiaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Amazing Profile of the Gilded AgeMarch 31, 2013BarbVirginiaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Many of us yearn for more "things" to make us comfortable, successful and happy. Is that wrong? Will more money, more possessions, more social status bring more satisfaction and more happiness? Will those things attained upon the backs of others' labor satisfy our deepest needs? Where is the Lord in the desire for "more" earthly things?
This story is a rather interesting representation of the story of Jacob and Esau or even a slight variation of the Prodigal Son. In the Gilded Age of the late 1800's through the early 1900's, arose the powerful families that drove the American economy and set all the cultural standards of high society: The Morgans, Carnegies, Rockerfellers, Vanderbilts and Astors.
Two sisters in that convoluted web of money and society life were born into nearly unimaginable wealth and prestige but their hearts were polar opposites from the outset. This story chronicles their lives through their individual searches for clarity and heart worthiness.
It is a story of familial strife and betrayal and of separation and heartache but of ultimate restoration and forgiveness.

Jocelyn Green, author of Faith DeployedCedar Falls, IAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Masterfull StorytellingAugust 5, 2012Jocelyn Green, author of Faith DeployedCedar Falls, IAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Heiress is one of the best books I've ever read in terms of skillful storytelling, character development, and rich historical detail. As a novelist, this was worth the read if only for me to see and take notes on how good fiction if written! I know some people have found it a little on the dark side. One of the two main characters follows her own choices and ends up in a web of deceit and adulteryÃ¢â¬âof course sins we would never condoneÃ¢â¬âbut Susan does it to show us what life can be when we are not surrendered to Christ. (If you read the Author's Note in the back of the book first, it will better frame the story so you know what the author is up to.) This was not a warm-fuzzy tale, but a sobering epic that will keep you turning the pages as you see the character's life choices unfold into a fascinating wreck--and what she decides to do about it in the end.
