Fun, Historical, Touching, and very Teaching story!!!
Even though our Texas Ranger was hand picked for his manly figure, he hasn't seen it all until he met our Doctor Billy Jack Tate with very feminine figure but with mind manly enough to even rival his. try and guard that woman. The whole Fair ground want getting in as much trouble a her. But no matter how much of man's world we try to take over we will still be women and this book i perfect eye opener. we are engineered from inside to be women, we will never be truly happy until we accept our God-given role in life. So at the end of this book ms Billy isn't making a sacrifice she is taking a step in the right direction.
I was very touched by all the poverty and the straggle against it. the injustice in imprisonment was disconcerting and i'm glad for the people who were key to making changes in our government system. Deeanne Gist did exceptional job with this story and i believe its her best one yet!!!
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from Howard Books, through netgalley, in exchange for my honest opinion.
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.
