From the bestselling author of It Happened at the Fair comes
a historical love story about a lady doctor and a Texas
Ranger who meet at the 1893 Chicago Worldâ€™s Fair.
Saddled with a manâ€™s name, the captivating Billy Jack Tate
makes no apologies for taking on a manâ€™s profession. As a
doctor at the 1893 Chicago Worldâ€™s Fair, she is one step
closer to having her very own medical practiceâ€”until Hunter
Scott asks her to give it all up to become his wife.
Hunter is one of the elite. A Texas Ranger and Worldâ€™s Fair
guard specifically chosen for his height, physique,
character, and skill. Hailed as the toughest man west of any
place east, he has no patience for big cities and women who
think they belong anywhere but homeâ€¦
Despite their difference of opinion on the role of women,
Hunter and Billy find a growing attraction between themâ€”
until Hunter discovers an abandoned baby in the corner of a
White City exhibit. He and Billy team up to make sure this
foundling isnâ€™t left in the slums of Chicago with only the
flea-riddled, garbage-infested streets for a playground. As
they fight for the underprivileged children in the
Nineteenth Ward, an entire Playground Movement is birthed.
But when the Fair comes to an end, one of them will have to
give up their dream.
Will Billy exchange her doctorâ€™s shingle for the
domesticated role of a southern wife, or will Hunter abandon
the wide open spaces of home for a life in the â€śgray city,â€ť
a woman who insists on being the wage earner, and a group of
ragamuffins who need more than a playground for breathing
