IT HAPPENED AT THE FAIR
Gist brings the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893 to life with rich detail and amazing characters. They have stumbling blocks to overcome with the help of their faith.
Cullen McNamara has risked everything to get his latest invention, a sprinkler system for farms, to the Fair. But the noise of the Machinery Palace makes communication difficult, so he enlists Della Wentworth, who can read lips, to teach him. They both are attracted to each other, but neither is sure what will happen after the fair comes to an end. (HOWARD, May, 432 pp., $15.99)
