I LOVED this book! Victorian Chicago is so deftly rendered, I felt like I was there-I could see the city as I read, even though I've never been to modern-day Chicago, and have certainly never been to Chicago in the 1870s. I burned through this novel with romance that sizzled on every page (pardon the puns). The story of two women, one who fate favoured, the other who fate forgot, this novel delivers friendship dynamics right out of Downton Abbey. Fans of historical fiction, romantic fiction, glamour, and betrayal will not want to miss this book!
