I'm a bit late with this one, but better late than unread! I've shared about this wonderful historical author before, and she's back with another winning novel!
Carol Cox writes with authentic voice about the days of the World's Fair in Chicago. In "A Bride So Fair", a young boy is left abandoned at one of the expositions, his mother vanished.
Emily Ralston has found a precious commodity--a paying job! Working as a receptionist at the Children's Building, she takes temporary custody of Adam from the guard. But when Adam's mother never appears, what will she do with him?
Stephen Bridger not only found the boy, but he's found something in Emily. Soon after, he's in on another discovery that plunges the two of them into danger. Who would want to harm Adam's mother, and what do they want with the boy?
With rich detail and description, Carol Cox has written another World's Fair story that is sure to be enjoyable for fans of Christian historical fiction! I'm giving "A Bride So Fair" four out of five bookmarks, with a reticule as a charm (I'm guessing it's one of those foofy purses women used to carry back in the day--right??).
