"A Woman of Fortune," by Kellie Coates Gilbert

"A Woman of Fortune," by Kellie Coates Gilbert

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.


I really enjoyed this book, it was one of those books where you had to see what happens next.  It was also a book where one minute life is going along at a great pace then all of a sudden it all comes to a stop and everything is taken away from you and you have to re-group and start afresh.

I loved the author's take on this "crisis" that affects all the family and we see it from the family of the fraudster's point of view.  We also see how fickle and devious people who surround them are and who their true friends are.

One of the things I found really interesting was the emotions that Claire went through regarding her marriage.  It made you think I wonder what I would do if that happened to me.  I would like to think I would make the same choice as Claire did.  It also questions how strong they were as a family unit;  as they say blood is thicker than water.

Stars out of 5 : 5 and a solid 5 at that.  This book is not only entertaining to read it also brings up the questions as to what would you do in the same situation.  It also brings up the point, never believe everything you read in the media.
