Publisher's Description

From the bestselling author of It Happened at the Fair comes a historical love story about a lady doctor and a Texas Ranger who meet at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.

Saddled with a man’s name, the captivating Billy Jack Tate makes no apologies for taking on a man’s profession. As a doctor at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, she is one step closer to having her very own medical practice—until Hunter Scott asks her to give it all up to become his wife.

Hunter is one of the elite. A Texas Ranger and World’s Fair guard specifically chosen for his height, physique, character, and skill. Hailed as the toughest man west of any place east, he has no patience for big cities and women who think they belong anywhere but home…

Despite their difference of opinion on the role of women, Hunter and Billy find a growing attraction between them—until Hunter discovers an abandoned baby in the corner of a White City exhibit. He and Billy team up to make sure this foundling isn’t left in the slums of Chicago with only the flea-riddled, garbage-infested streets for a playground. As they fight for the underprivileged children in the Nineteenth Ward, an entire Playground Movement is birthed. But when the Fair comes to an end, one of them will have to give up their dream.

Will Billy exchange her doctor’s shingle for the domesticated role of a southern wife, or will Hunter abandon the wide open spaces of home for a life in the “gray city,” a woman who insists on being the wage earner, and a group of ragamuffins who need more than a playground for breathing space?

    Absolutely loved this book. Deanne, never disappoints! The scenes are so real with the characters demonstrating a full range of emotion, with engaging dialog. The story is told with timeless details from the Chicago World's Fair and pulls the reader into its' grip before they realize it. I love the way Deanne blends God's love with romance history, and humor.

    Deanne did an awesome job bringing to life the struggle of women trying to live in a man's working world. (Amongst other story lines about the poor, lack of child labor laws, prejudice, justice system, etc) i love especially how she was able to show her character's inability to realize that as a women she needed to recognize that she was still physically weak, and that she constantly placed herself in a vulneable sometimes compromisng position. Through funny interaction it was neat to see how the sexes thought very differently. Her character, Dr Tate had to learn her limitations and accept them as well as understand she had a God given desire to fur-fill a greater role that God natually instilled in us women. the desire to be a mother, the desire to be a wife.

    deanne brought that all to light without losing the respect women played in history as leaders, docotors, servants of the Lord, etc.

    well done! i saw myself in this story, as a young zealous female, and saw my mistakes, my arrogance, and my naivety. great moral story for all young women to learn today.

    the romance showed how both characters fell naturally in their God given desire for each other. once again reminding us that we are women, man is man and marriage is Good! I would love my daughter to read it, it does have some sensuality, however it only realistically shows the struggle and again how God created us with a desire to complete and fur fill the opposite sex in God's timing of course.

    Loved the book.

    This review was written for Fair Play.
    I liked the historical aspect and the pictures, but that was it. I felt like the only thing Hunter was interested in was getting into Dr. Billy's pants. Where was God in this book? I will not recommend this book, and I will not reread it.
