It is nice to read a book with a Christian basis that has real characters that aren't pollyannas. Life is tough but the Lord is sovereign and He does work all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purposes. I like that this book showed that you can trust Him to see you through the challenges that will come into your life. Well done.

I throughly enjoyed "A Woman of Fortune". It brought forward the long reaching effect the wrong doing of one individual upon family and friends and what is left in the aftermath.

I couldn't put this down. Literally stayed up to 2AM finishing it. The writing is smooth, descriptive and the characters grab ahold of the reader. It's been a while for a book to demand my not putting it down. I'm looking forward to reading more from Kellie Gilbert.

I wasn't too sure about reading this one when I saw the cover, but I trust Kellie Coates Gilbert. So I got it. And I don't know what I was expecting, but this book (women's fiction) blew my expectations right out of the box I put it in. Five stars for sure! Sometimes in the course of growing up up into real Christians, our lives can get pretty rough. It certainly did with Clair Massey in Woman of Fortune. When you lose everything you counted on, everything that had been precious, everything you thought was unchangeable--well, hang onto God for all you're worth, and when you can't anymore, let Him hold onto you. I had to keep reminding myself, this is fiction--it's only a story.
