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.

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

My Review:
It's not often that I give 5-stars for a book, but this one deserves that ultimate rating. What a dramatic life the protagonist, Claire Massey leads! The reader watches while she moves from riches to rags. (How is she going to survive this latest blow?) But Claire is a survivor, a strong woman, who withstands whatever comes her way, and believe me, there is plenty for her to endure.

One thing that Claire and I have in common is the belief in family. Not much is more important. She works to keep her family together.

Here is a story that will keep you flipping those pages until the very end. Buy it; you'll like it.
