Susan May Warren is thrilled to announce the release of her latest historical book, Heiress!

Susan May Warren
(Summerside Press)
ISBN: 978-1609362188
July, 2011/380 pages/$14.99

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.

Read an excerpt here.

Susan May Warren is an award-winning, best-selling author of over twenty-five novels, many of which have won the Inspirational Readers Choice Award, the ACFW Book of the Year award, the Rita Award, and have been Christy finalists. After serving as a missionary for eight years in Russia, Susan returned home to a small town on Minnesota’s beautiful Lake Superior shore where she, her four children, and her husband are active in their local church.

Susan's larger than life characters and layered plots have won her acclaim with readers and reviewers alike. A seasoned women’s events and retreats speaker, she’s a popular writing teacher at conferences around the nation and the author of the beginning writer’s workbook: From the Inside-Out: discover, create and publish the novel in you!. She is also the founder, a story-crafting service that helps authors discover their voice.

Susan makes her home in northern Minnesota, where she is busy cheering on her two sons in football, and her daughter in local theater productions (and desperately missing her college-age son!)

Oh, the beauty, wealth, and romance of the Gilded Age! It is such fun to read and imagine being gowned and coifed and swept away for an evening of dancing and socializing. Surely happiness lies in such! Or maybe not. . . ! I loved this story of two very different sisters who had two different views of their pampered lifestyle. They certainly did not expect the long-reaching consequences of the choices they made. This is a delightful read and a wonderful reminder of what really matters in life

I have yet to read a Susan May Warren book.
Through this post I have learned more about her. I think it's interesting to learn she was a missionary.
For some reason I thought her books were geared for the young adult only.
I would love to win this book.

I would love to win a copy of this book. Ever since a trip to Newport Rhode Island and touring a few mansions of the gilded age there, this time period has captivated me.
