Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling 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 World's Fair.

Saddled with a man's name, the captivating Billy Jack Tate makes no apologies for taking on a man's profession. As a doctor at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, she is one step closer to having her very own medical practice - until Hunter Scott asks her to give it all up to become his wife.

Hunter is one of the elite. A Texas Ranger and World'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 home.... Despite their difference of opinion on the role of women, Hunter and Billy find a growing attraction between them - until Hunter discovers an abandoned baby in the corner of a White City exhibit. He and Billy team up to make sure this foundling isn'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 19th 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 doctor'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 "gray city", a woman who insists on being the wage earner, and a group of ragamuffins who need more than a playground for breathing space?

    "Good."

    Good story. Like the narrator but didn't think she quite fit the story. Overall I enjoyed it.

    Story
    "On the edge of my seat"

    I must say this was my favorite of Mrs. Gist so far. The history, adventure and development of each character was well done.

    Story
    "excellent"

    good clean story. I learned things I did not know about that period in history and what life would have been like in the slums. A lot of suspense. Romance excellent. I could have used perhaps a bit less of the explicit physical explanations which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, but overall could highly recommend
