A Woman of Fortune (Texas Gold Collection)



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 Impressions: 


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."
