Susie was one of the first authors that I discovered back when I stumbled across Liz Curtis Higgs and began my all-consuming love of Christian Historical Fiction. It was her Heirs of Anton series. So now that I find she is writing another new series set in the "opulent world of the Gilded Age" I could help but be intrigued! This era seems to be a poplar one as I've also gotten my hands on one from Nancy Moser and before that Siri Mitchell. I could not wait to see Susie's take on it!

At about 183 pages of this 380 page novel I can already say I feel like I've already read two full novels in this short page length with the sisters two stories. Both of romance and tragedy. I'm waiting for Oliver to walk up and say, oh it was a mistake and for Bennett to look out over the sea and return. Alas.

At just over halfway through I felt like I'm in another novel, this time a western. This is awesome. You get a gilded age adventure and a prairie romance too! As the character comes up, I am remembering all my history bullet points on Teddy Roosevelt phrases and I think Susie is hitting them all. In finishing another segment I promise these could be individual novels. Changing characters and following along in history it is as if the Heirs of Anton series were one long book instead of four shorter ones.

I did not expect a thing. Honestly I haven't finished reading any of the Golden Era novels except Cara Lynn James first one as it came across. After finishing this one I'm desperate for more. I want to go back to the Moser and Mitchell books and get more of the time and the era. I want to find the rest of James series and drink it all in. I cannot wait for more Daughters of Fortune. I cannot even imagine what comes next. Every twist and turn took me by surprise and I was rereading sections because I was just sure that I misunderstood. Not after everything, could that happen! - I kept saying to myself. But it did. Every thing that happened made things lead to the next. It reminds me of endings that I imagined for tragic movies that did not end as I wished in their romance.

This was and is awesome.

*Thanks to Litfuse Publicity for providing a copy for review.*

Margaret goodness typing from my nook gives me spelling typos galore! sorry!!


Katie Oh okay, cool. On my way! :-)

Haha, it's okay. I understood! :-)


Margaret I'm finished now. About to write full review. When I said that Esme got her uplifting part, I didn't expect what happened next. I had to read the next part on her about five times before it really sunk in. Wow great book.


Margaret Something I should have added to my review is that it is Francine Rivers Marta's Legacy good.


Katie Just finished the book, too. I know what you mean about Esme. I couldn't believe it either! Talk about a tough life. Susan didn't make it easy for either Esme or Jinx!
