The Quiet EccentricCanadaAge: Under 18Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Not Deeanne's best... but still GREAT!June 22, 2013The Quiet EccentricCanadaAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Deeanne Gist is one of my favorite authors, and although this wasn't my favorite book of hers, it was still worth every minute. Dee has done a remarkable job researching the World Fair of 1893 and she really brought it to life. Characters were engaging although if your looking for a hot romance, I would look elsewhere. It was a sweet book filled with vivid descriptions of the fair's wonders, but the romance was quiet and like I said... sweet. I really liked the aspect of having the deaf involved, and seeing what that all entailed in the 19th century.
I'm glad I read this story, as I always anxiously await anything Dee writes. For lovers of historical fiction, this is a book you wouldn't want to miss!

Absolutely loved it. The characters, the plot, the time period, and the location everything was great. I couldn't put this book down. I love how there were pictures of the fair included in the book, it just made the book that much better. The only thing I wish were different about the book, is that we never learn who tampered with Cayden's display. Other than that, the book was great.
AmyLLaguna Niguel, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Not ChristianMay 27, 2013AmyLLaguna Niguel, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleMeets Expectations: 1I am very disappointed. This book has no mention of Christianity. I'm surprised that CBD even sells it. I buy books not only for my own reading pleasure, but also so I can share them through our church's library. I cannot share this book. I'll have to donate it the public library. The story is OK, although predictable, but without a Christian basis, I feel that my time reading it was wasted.
readgreatfictionLancaster, PAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Fresh ViewMay 21, 2013readgreatfictionLancaster, PAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have read quite a few novels that take place surrounding the Chicago's World's Fair, and my interest was beginning to wain. So when I began reading this story, and realized what a fresh perspective of the fair that this tale tells, it caught me by surprise. I was hooked.
Deeanne captures the street-level feel of the fair from within. The authentic feel of this book showcases strong research, and the characters that come to life on its pages are intriguing.
To use a cliche, I felt "swept-along" as I turned each page. I was never tempted to put the book down. It was a very satisfying read, and it left me wishing that I really could go back and experience the Chicago World's Fair for myself.
I received an eBook copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review. All opinions rendered are my own.
