Glad to have you visit my little corner of the blog world! I'm a minister's wife and stay-at-home mommy.
Here you will find LOTS of book reviews, because I LOVE to read. You'll also get a little peak into our family life as we seek to raise the three gifts from the Lord with which we have been richly blessed and a little of the things I'm learning as I daily surrender to the Lord in complete trust. This life isn't always easy, but it is an adventure like no other. At the end of each day, I rest in the faithfulness of Almighty God.
Praying you are blessed by your visit with me!
Kellie Coates Gilbert is a former legal investigator and trial paralegal and the author of A Woman of Fortune, Where Rivers Part, and A Reason to Stay. Gilbert crafts her emotionally charged stories about women in life-changing circumstances in Dallas, Texas, where she lives with her husband.
Just wen she can't take it anymore, Leta finally catches a break. But when things seem too good to be true, they often are. Finding her dream job went right out the window when Leta Breckenridge had to quit school to help care for her mother suffering from dementia. When a delinquent account may force her mother into a less desirable facility. Leta is thrilled to land a high-paying job at an Austin public relations firm. But her seemingly ideal job turns into a nightmare when she learns the firm is a front for a political opposition organization - and that the research she's been collecting will be used against Nathan Emerson, the handsome senator she's swiftly falling in love with. Nathan is a rising political star being pressured to run a bid to unseat the current governor of Texas. He's already in a relationship with a woman much better suited to be a politician's wife, but he's never met anyone like Leta. Could this feisty woman hold the key to his heart - and his future? With emotional depth and keen insight into what drives us, Kellie Coates Gilbert offers a salient story that calls us to consider what we value most in this life. My Thoughts:
Gilbert never fails to deliver and highly emotionally charged story that seems as if it is ripped straight from the headlines! What Matters Most is Gilbert's fourth book in her Texas Gold series and it did not disappoint. It was certainly one of my most favorite Summer reads. I have followed Gilbert since reading her book Mother of Pearland I have read the previous Texas Gold novels. Gilberts books are keeper shelf material for sure.
What I appreciated and enjoyed most about What Matters Most is the political intrigue and the way Gilbert constructs characters that are believable. The angst and tension are almost palpable at times and kept me turning the pages. Leta's transformation alone is worthy of the time spent reading this latest offering from Gilbert.
