Pursuing Gold by Cynthia L. Simmoms Book Review

Pursuing Gold
Pursuing Gold (Elk Lake, October 2016)
With his father dead and his business partner incapacitated, Peter Chandler inherits the leadership of a bank in economic crisis.
With only a newly-minted college degree and little experience, Peter joins his partner’s daughter, Mary Beth Roper, in a struggle to keep C&R Bank afloat while the Civil War rages around Chattanooga. Political pressure for unsecured loans of gold to the government stirs up trouble as tempers and prices rise. Their problems multiply when Mary Beth discovers counterfeit money with Peter’s forged signature. Can they find the forger before the bank fails? The two friends must pursue gold on behalf of their business, as they learn to pursue their heavenly Father to find hope and peace.

My Review:
Peter Chandler is at a crossroads in his life. He has just found himself in charge of a bank because his father has died and his partner cannot help him . Mary Beth Roper is his partner's daughter. She has decided to try to help Peter even while the Civil War is taking place. It will not be easy. Someone has been signing signatures saying that they are  Peter and now they are facing huge problems. They have to find the person who is doing this. . Will they find out who this is or will the bank fail? Will they find a way to save their future and be able to carry on or will they get hurt? I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review and these are my opinions.
