A Woman of Fortune by Kellie Coates Gilbert

 About This Book:

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 living.

Author Kellie Coates Gilbert delivers a story both poignant and emotionally gripping that celebrates the kind of fortune that lasts.

My Thoughts on This Book:

This book made me think how important truth and family really is. 30 + years with a loving, devoted husband and father but behind another closed door he is doing shady business deals and stealing money from friends and family. Claire knows none of this is going on, living in her rich bubble of a happy life, going on trips and buying whatever she desires. When her world comes crashing down and everything she has ever known stops, she now needs to reinvent herself. Her old life is no longer, her family is torn into pieces and healing begins. With one true friend to stand by her side and a new friend, Brian to help her get back on her feet again.

I loved this story. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. It was well written, full of anticipation with realistic characters that come alive on the page.
