Waiting On Wednesday: Shadows of the White City by Jocelyn Green

January 27, 2021

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature that spotlights an up-and-coming release you are most excited about.

I'm kicking off this New Year looking forward to one of my favorite authors. Jocelyn Green writes historical fiction in such a way, she takes you back in time. 
This feature is for a continuation of her Windy City Saga. Book one, Veiled in Smoke focused on the great Chicago Fire and the aftermath it had. Book two is set at the time of the World's Fair. I'm very excited about this, as I haven't really read a book set during this even yet. 

Waiting On:
Title: Shadows of the White City
Author: Jocelyn Green
Publisher: Bethany House
Series: Windy City Saga
Publication Date: February 2nd, 2021

About the Book:
The one thing Sylvie Townsend wants most is what she feared she was destined never to have--a family of her own. But taking in Polish immigrant Rose Dabrowski to raise and love quells those fears--until seventeen-year-old Rose goes missing at the World's Fair, and Sylvie's world unravels.

Brushed off by the authorities, Sylvie turns to her boarder, Kristof Bartok, for help. He is Rose's violin instructor and the concertmaster for the Columbian Exposition Orchestra, and his language skills are vital to helping Sylvie navigate the immigrant communities where their search leads.

From the glittering architecture of the fair to the dark houses of Chicago's poorest neighborhoods, they're taken on a search that points to Rose's long-lost family. Is Sylvie willing to let the girl go? And as Kristof and Sylvie grow closer, can she reconcile her craving for control with her yearning to belong?
