A Woman of Fortune by Kellie Coates Gilbert

Back Cover: Texas socialite Claire Massey is living the dream. Her world is filled with designer clothes, luxury cars, and stunning homes. But her Neiman-Marcus lifestyle comes crashing down when her charming cattle broker husband is arrested for fraud. Suddenly, she finds herself facing attorneys, a media frenzy, and a trail of broken hearts. Betrayed and humiliated, Claire must start over against incredible odds to save her family--and discover a life worth living.

Poignant and emotionally gripping, A Woman of Fortune reveals the many ways we deceive ourselves and how resilience of the heart is essential to authentic living. Drawing on her experiences as a legal investigator, author Kellie Coates Gilbert delivers emotionally gripping plots and authentic characters. Readers will love Claire's unbending determination as she strives to keep her family from falling apart and learns to embrace the kind of fortune that lasts.

Review: I asked for this book for one reason - I loved the cover. Now, that isn't the worst reason to pick a book, but I always feel a little sheepish admitting to something so shallow.

Do you know the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover?"

Well, this book is as lovely as it's cover. The story is heartwarming, deep, emotional, and very real. Although not usually a fan of present-day novels, this book was a pleasure to read. The depth of the characters and believability of the tale was wonderful. God’s forgiveness and the beauty of second chances was so evident in this story. I really enjoyed reading this novel and will certainly pick up her next book with eagerness.
