Set during the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, the novel is about Violet Hayes, a young, single woman who goes to Chicago and ends up finding a Mother that she was told was dead.

The World's Fair figures in the story because she visits there several times. Also, Violet's grandmother is active in Christian mission activities, and Violet meets people associated with D. L. Moody's ministry.

A perfect mix of mystery, romance and humor. You will enjoy it.
