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.
Kellie Coates Gilbert delivers a story both poignant and emotionally gripping
that celebrates the kind of fortune that lasts.
I could not put this book down. It really drove home how women deceive
themselves and if we would start becoming authentic with the world and
ourselves how much happier we would be in life. The author did a wonderful job
showing how much emphasis is based on power, money, materialism and greed in
our society and how quickly it can be taken from you.Without God as your foundation you truly have
nothing in this world. My relationship with God pours over into my family life
and all other aspects, something that Claire comes to understand.
This book is filled with a lot of emotions: anger, grief, hatred, sorrow
and joy. Through it all though peace is finally found when everything else is
stripped away and the whole truth comes out.
I enjoyed the saturated realism in this book, the legal situations and
outcomes were on the mark. The characters
were well written and enjoyable to get to know. Although I could not relate in
anyway to the “lifestyle” that was being lived, I still enjoyed the book. Actually reminded me of a verse in Matthew
19:24 “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a
needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."
