Bel Reviews: Allison Rushby's - "The Heiresses"


Heiresses CVR SI.inddIn the mood for a period book with the pomp and ceremony of Pride and Prejudice, twists and turns of Sherlock Holmes, and the teen drama of Anne of Green Gables?

Imagine being summoned to London when you’ve always believed yourself to be adopted child, only to discover you have sisters and an aunt. And not only are they your sisters but 2 thirds of a set of triplets… yeah. Consider that your mind would be pretty much blown.

Now think that your adopted families are finding it difficult to get by in the 1920’s, and the reason you and your sisters have been called to London is to fight a half brother for the fortune that is rightfully, collectively, yours.

How amazing would that scenario be?

This is pretty much the wrap on The Heiresses. Cool, huh?

It is the full package.

I adore the vivid way Allison describes 1920’s London. She sets it up so well, I want take a Tardis and travel back in time. Fashions, lifestyle, and the way women are starting to fight for their rights.

Her characters are vastly different from one another. Their voices are strong and even though there is that sister I want to slap, she is still lovable in her fractured way.

Allison has nailed 1920’s Girl Power.

If you enjoyed the Montmaray Journals by Michelle Cooper, you’ll be swept up in the delight that is The Heiresses.
