REVIEW: I was intrigued by the premise of Kellie Coates Gilbert’s novel, A Woman of Fortune. Having read her debut novel, I knew the writing would be outstanding, but I was curious if the storyline would be strong enough to keep me engaged. After all, a billionaire socialite who falls on hard times was hardly something I thought would snag me by the heartstrings. However, this book was so much more! Gilbert takes a hard look at the inner workings of a family struggling to find their way back to each other. She examines the heart of the main character, Claire Massey, and forces the reader to look at their own beliefs and prejudices. This was a complex, intriguing read, well worth the afternoon it took me to read it (because I couldn’t put it down!). I highly recommend it!
