5.0 out of 5 stars Heiress, Sept. 12 2011

(TOP 50 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Heiress (Paperback)
August Prices' daughters couldn't be any more unlike. Esme was beautiful and had a natural grace about her but wanted no part of high society. She refused to marry for anything less than love and dreamed of writing for her father's paper.

Perhaps Jinx would have made a better older sister. She couldn't wait to be presented to society, find a good match, and take her rightful place. Jinx wanted everything that Esme cared so little about.

Life has a funny way of giving you exactly what you wish for, perhaps what you need as well. Faced with a loveless marriage, Esme leaves high society behind and creates her own newspaper in Montana. Jinx, seamlessly steps in Esme's place in high society, marries, and takes on the life that she always wanted.

Years later, the question remains. Are these women happy with their choices? Can you really walk away from your family and become another person? Can you step into another's life and not feel the burden of that shadow?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gilded Age, May 9 2012
This review is from: Heiress (Paperback)
This book is set in New York during the Gilded Age, with people like the Astors and Rockefellers. This is about the two daughters of a newspaper magnate. One rejects the lifestyle and society she was born into, the other embraces it. Both pay a heavy price to fulfil their dreams and find true love. This book had the feel of an epic even though it didn't span a great length of time. I liked it even more than I expected to. It's just ironic that I was also reading a non-fiction book on poverty simultaneously, so the extravagance of $250,000 dinner parties was hard to take by comparison.
