    Unexpected but very interesting!!! This is my first book by Kellie Coats Gilbert, and I say its a good start.

    Contemporary--straight from the magazine sort of story. Very heart wrenching and a constant battle for the family. I liked that. But there were some moral issues that i totally don't agree and wouldn't encourage people on it. But its reality and I respect the author for taking on the challenge to write about it.

    Recommendable but not to all readers.

    I wasn't sure I was going to like this story but I was wrong. This dragged me into this family's troubles even though they were rich. I never could like the husband/father but that is me. I look forward to reading more of this series. I received this book from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    A Woman of Fortune is a thought-provoking, entertaining book. One day the Massey family goes from riches to being in the poor-house because Tuck Massey participated in a Ponzi scheme and bilked millions out of people. Tucks family has to give up the beautiful houses, expensive cars, expensive clothes and jewelry and paid help. The book was full of romance, intrigue, inspiration, families and friendships. I look forward to another Texas Gold novel.

    I recieved this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This book was impossible to put down!! I was hooked from the start and it is definitely a new favorite. If you are looking for a spoiler...I'm not going to give it away.

    A Woman of Fortune by Kellie Coates Gilbert is filled to the brim with romance, inspiration, intrigue...you become deeply invested and will not want the story to end - I know I didn't!

    Ms. Gilbert's realistic writing style makes you feel like you know the characters personally, that you are watching them grow before you. This is a powerfully emotional story that reminds you of what is most important in life...not material things...but faith, love of God, and your family!

    I am looking forward to Ms. Gilbert's next book! I would highly recommend this book to everyone, it is wonderful!

    I was given this book for my honest opinion by bookfun.org.

    This book takes the reader into the lifestyle of a pampered socialite whose dream life comes crashing down when her cattle baron husband is arrested for fraud. The story delves into the family and friends whose lives are shattered by greed and broken trust. I found the story to be inspiring as Claire struggles to keep her family intact and struggles to survive the challenges she is forced to face.
