Cover Art

You never know what you're really made of until you lose everything.
Texas socialite Claire Massey is living the dream--designer clothes, luxury cars, stunning homes. But everything 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 face incredible odds to save her family--and discover a life worth "

My Reflections: 

This book captured my attention right from the cover, it is beautiful! I was drawn to the story line as it was something different than the books that I have reviewed as of late, and I was pleasantly surprised!

Coates Gilbert is a skilled story teller, with a background in Legal Investigation her knowledge and insight brings depth and life to her second novel. A Woman of Fortune is a stark reminder of what is really important in life, not riches, not fame, not worldly trappings. It made me take a good hard look at my life and the path I am following.

When Clair's husband a wealthy cattle broker is arrested, her life spins out of control. Everything Clair is accustomed to is stripped away. Tuck, Clair's husband is charged with cattle fraud, and in the space of days everything changes, and not only for Clair but for her three children as well.
Clair must stand on her own and face the accusations head on, will she be able to stand by Tuck or will the hurt, resentment and anger prove to be too much?

I loved how Clair's character was so utterly devoted to her family, and her ability to persevere in the midst of turmoil, and upheaval. It really brought home how important church family, and friends are in tough situations. Clair quickly found out who was going to stand by her and who was just along for the ride.

This book was a real treat to read, I often though "why couldn't chicken brokers do so well" Ah I am kidding for sure! Kellie Coates Gilbert did a wonderful job on this novel, I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
