A powerful Victorian love story of Irish immigrants coming to America, Chicago, 1893, full of hope, full of dreams, and a willingness to work hard.
The year is 1893, and the city is Chicago, and it's the start of the Columbian World Exposition. The eyes of the nation and the world are upon the Windy City.
Octavia and Patrick Collins, fresh off the ship from Ireland, came there too, to live their dreams and their hopes. Just married, their love is strong and pure, but will undergo the tests and trials that are ahead as the story unfolds.

Really loved this sweet love story from the past, hard to believe it was based on a true historic happening. Makes me want to dig in more to the events described. Only complaint is that I wished it had been much longer, ended too soon!
A really wonderfully written book, done in a seldom seen classical victorian romance style. Didn't think anyone even wrote this way any more! It's a sweet and tender story. Wished it were a bit longer.
