About The Book:

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.

My Review:

If you want to read a novel this summer that will draw you in immediately from the first pages of chapter one, that is fast-paced and has remarkable, real-to-life characters that any reader can relate to, and discover themes like family, the impact of God's Grace, forgiveness, greed and more, then look no further than A Woman of Fortune. The cover caught my eye right away, intriguing me enough to find out what the story was of this beautiful woman on the cover. If a cover catches me, then I know, most often it is going to be a great read. This one was indeed. It was an emotional read and times and my favorite character was the main one, Claire. I absolutely loved and admired her determined attitude to overcome her difficulties. The story lines intermingled nicely and the book flowed wonderfully as well.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
