Pursuing Gold (Review)
This review is for the book "Pursuing Gold" by Cynthia Simmons. This is a novel of the Civil War era, and if you enjoy historical fiction, you will definitely like this novel which is full of suspense, mystery and romance. Although it is suspenseful it isn't gruesome or anything that will make you cringe.
In this book, Peter Chandler has inherited the leadership of a bank. His partner's daughter, Mary Beth, who is an old family friend, is taking over some duties as well since her father is in poor health. Unfortunately, right now is not a good time for the banking business because the Civil War is raging around Chattanooga. There is a lot of political pressure, and then Mary Beth discovers counterfeit money which puts the bank in grave danger of closing. While the two journey together to stop the counterfeiter, save the bank, find investments in Gold, and come to terms with their parents' death and failing health, they also learn to lean on one another and are able to find love.
I found this book very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend it.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book.
