Description
"The complexity of [the sisters'] relationship fascinates....[Dailey] moves her story ahead so purposefully and dramatically...readers will be glad they've gone along for the ride." CHICAGO SUN-TIMES They meet at their father's funeral, two beautiful women who could almost be twins. Abbie Lawson is the gently bred daugter, raised in the lap of luxury. Rachel Farr is the love child of Dean Lawson and a fiery artist. Rachel's life has been modest and lonely--until now. For the father's death will set off a fierce competition between the sisters, and the stakes are nothing less than all that is Texas at its most magnificent--its oil fields, its Arabian horse farms, and its extraordinary men--men who will love two women who should have been the best of friends. Instead, they are locked in a battle to prove whom their father loved best by fighting to inherit his legacy....

New York Times Bestseller: Two Texan half sisters battle over their father's fortune, risking their relationships with the men who love them.

Standing over her father's coffin, Abbie Lawson wonders if he ever actually loved her. Yes, he'd given her wealth, a place in the top echelon of Houston society, and horses—a farm full of Arabians—but not his attention. On those important family occasions, he was always away on business in California. And then Abbie sees why . . .

On the fringe of the crowd of mourners at the funeral is a woman whose face nearly mirrors her own—a second daughter. And, as if that betrayal isn't enough, she discovers that her father has left his money to the interloper. Abbie has the Arabians, but not the money to support them. As she witnesses her rival's rise in the Texas social scene, a tall, rough-hewn oil man named MacCrea Wilder enters her life. She doesn't need the distraction, but there's something about his sinewy arms that keeps her mind circling back to his kiss. Yet, as the years pass, even love may be sacrificed to the bitterness between these two women.

With over 300 million books sold, Janet Dailey is one of the great names in fiction. In Heiress, she tells the story of half sisters trapped in a bitter rivalry, providing the "solid entertainment" that made her famous (Publishers Weekly).
