Especially enjoyed this trilogy as I am from Chicago area and I find the 1893 Chicago world's fair very fascinating. Deanne Gist also wrote of the fair in her novels and you should read " Devil in the white city" to learn more about what went on during that time
Always enjoy all of Shelley s .Gray's books
