A woman of Fortune, by Kellie Coates Gilbert. Clair had everything, and I mean everything. Anything she wanted was hers! A husband who adored her, and what ever money could buy her and her family. Until it was discovered that the money wasn't come by honestly. Clairs husband is arrested and faces jail for fraud. Her world comes crashing down, her husband is gone and the money is gone. Her children, now grown, are products of their upbringing. Snobby socialites who don't understand the important things in life. Now on her own and finding herself like the majority of the rest of the world, needing to work for the things they need. Clair and her family come together to battle through the shame of Tuck's criminal activities, loosing their social status and the respect that money once brought them, and trying to Find where God is in this mess. More than anything Clair's priority is that the family be held together!
I really enjoyed this book! I love that the author took a twist on a novel that many Christian authors do not. Its rare to see a struggle, such as fraud, in a christian book. Even though I'm sure there's enough Christian homes out there that can relate to this scenario. I found myself loving some characters and hating others, which I'm sure is exactly what the author intended for us to feel! It really is a good read and I'm happy to have had the opportunity to have read this book! Its not a book that will disappoint!
