While we were out of town for a week, I read the book "It Happened at the Fair" by Deeanne Gist. I don't read many historical fiction novels, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
This is a very long book (about 400 pages), but I honestly read it fairly quickly. Once I got started, I was hooked into the story and couldn't wait to continue reading!
This story focuses on the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. The main characters are a man and a woman. The man, Cullen McNamara, is an inventor who is showcasing his product at the Fair. The woman, Della Wentworth, is a teacher of the deaf who is at the Fair with her students. Of course, I am sure that I don't have to tell what happens by the end of the fair. ;)
This novel included so much fun information about the 1893 World's Fair - the descriptions were incredible and easy to imagine. If you like historical fiction, I highly recommend "It Happened at the Fair!".
