Travel back in time to Civil War-era Chattanooga

I received a copy of this book free to review. I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading this book.

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*
Now that I am older, I appreciate all things from the Civil war-era & thankfully so does my 13 yr old. When I signed up to review this book, I also had her in mind to read it after me. 

Civil War-era novels have become a favorite of mine.

This was my first time reading anything by Cynthia L Simmons, & I must say that this book does not disappoint! "Pursuing Gold" is filled with drama and hardship

This book is about two friends partnering up to save a bank, but it's not all that easy as they have their ups and downs in the story such as learning to trust each other and above all Jesus. They deal with counterfeit money among other things. I don't want to say too much, so if you like Civil War-era books, then you will most def want to read this one!
