“Author John Glavin takes us on a fascinating trip to the Gilded Age.”

~John Drummond, CBS 2 Chicago and author of Thirty Years in the Trenches and It Ain’t Pretty but it’s Real


“The Fair itself is presented in such fabulous depth that you feel you are there.”

~Robert J. Herguth, former reporter and columnist with the Chicago Daily News and Chicago Sun-Times


“Glavin not only brings the Columbian Exposition to life with its stark, real prose, he has skillfully balanced the ingredients of fiction with impeccable research transporting the reader to the actual locale of the story, and bringing the characters to life. He leaves the reader with the warm feeling that he has personally witnessed what happened.”

~Jack Coombe, Historian and Novelist


"As the story evolves, the action accelerates, evoking increased concern on the part of the reader for the heroine."

~Richard Davidson, author of DECISION TIME! Better Decisions for a Better Life and Lead Us Not into Temptation
