Book Rview-Pursuing Gold-Cynthia L. Simmons

About the book (provided by Litfuse)
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.

And I thought . . . 
I wanted to really like this book.  It's really hard to say how I really felt.  I wasn't able to finish.  For me the book was slow starting.  I just couldn't get into it.  
As a somewhat new fan of historical romances a book has really got to get me from the start.  Most of the other books that I have read recently have and have kept me interested to the end. 
Pursuing Gold was an interesting story for the reader that really enjoys historical books especially the Civil War I would suggest 
giving it a try.  
I am willing to give it another try perhaps after the holidays when things slow down.
