Meet the Author

Carol Cox is a native of Arizona, whose time is devoted to being a pastor's wife, mom to her grown son, and a home-school teacher to her daughter, church pianist, and youth worker. She loves anything that she can do with her family: reading, traveling, historical studies, and outdoor excursions. She is also open to new pursuits on her own, including genealogy research, crafts, and the local historical society. She plans to write more historical inspirational romance, in which her goals are to encourage Christian readers with entertaining and uplifting stories and to pique the interests of non-Christians who might read her novels.

    Fast Paced Action, Beautiful Setting

    A Bride so Fair By Carol Cox Emily Ralston, a young woman raised in an orphanage, is taking her first steps toward independence. She worked at the orphanage, even after she was old enough to leave because it was the only home she¿d ever know. Now she steps into true adventure by taking a job working at the children¿s building at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, better know as the Chicago World¿s Fair. Emily and her friend Lucy are part of the crew that babysit for children while their parents tour the fair. Stephen Bridger, is a security guard at the fair. He and Emily meet when Stephen brings, three-year-old Adam, a lost child to the Children¿s Building. No one comes for Adam. The work day ends and Emily and Lucy, both raised as orphans, know what lies ahead for Adam if he¿s turned over to the police, as would be proper. Even if they only put him in the orphanage for a short time, it will be a traumatizing experience for the sweet little boy. The evil man who wants Adam, draws Emily and Stephen into a web of intrigue and danger. The danger only deepens when a body is found at the fair. A young woman who resembled very much the description of Adam¿s mother. With danger swirling all around, Emily and Stephen struggle with what¿s right and wrong. And Stephen¿s heroic streak won¿t let him hurt Emily, even as his decision to help her protect Adam could cost them their lives. This is the third book in Carol Cox¿s `A Fair To Remember¿ series. I have loved these books. The stories are great on their own, but Cox has done such great work setting the World¿s Fair up as a back drop that it becomes a character all it¿s own. Cox is masterful at using words to pull you into the story, as if you¿re riding that Ferris Wheel yourself, walking through the pavilions, seeing the wonders of the modern world, like cars and electric lights. It¿s very well done and my only real regret is that this is the final book in the series. I think Carol ought to write a book set in each and every building in that fair just to give us a closer look. But it¿s not to be. The summer is gone. The fair is closing. I will miss this fast paced series with it¿s rich setting very much.

    Absolutely fabulous! Could not put down!

    This is absolutely one of the best books that I have ever read in my entire life so far. A Bride So Fair by Carol Cox is the first work of Carol Cox's that I have had the privilege to read, but I'm excited now about finding more from her. First off, of the edition that I have, I love the cover of the girl looking off in the distance holding the quilt, it is just beautiful! The other cover edition I've seen, with the main characters standing there, well it's okay, but not as fabulous as this one with the purple. This story was so hard to put down. I have a lot to read, so I figured I'd start this one and get through a couple chapters if I could. Well, next thing I knew I was half way through and unwilling to stop. Then I'm at the part where my heart is beating so fast I can hardly contain myself and I have no idea what is going to happen or how things can be fixed, and then my husband gets home... *sigh* So, I had to stop make his dinner, eat mine, and then I'm back on the couch reading as fast as my eyes will let me and my mind is comprehending. Then I realize I'm going too fast and have to re-read a couple of passages, but then I have my good rate back. *sigh* Such a fabulous story! There is a mix of romance, and intrigue, and pure suspense. This story is unlike anything that I have read, but at the same time there are smidgens of little things that make my mind tangent off to something else I once loved. Such as: Anne of Green Gables the Continuing Story, much of Anne I see in Emily, and of course Dominique in Adam. Then there is a hint of the fast paced 'Oh my goodness, he is so evil! What can possibly happen?!?!' that I felt from Tracie Peterson's Yukon Quest series. If you want romance, it's here. History, got it. Mystery, oh definitely with plenty of cozy suspense. Really, I cannot urge you to read this book enough. DO IT!
