The White City by Grace Hitchcock

The White City by Grace Hitchcock

While attending the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, Winnifred Wylde believes she witnessed a woman being kidnapped. She tries to convince her father, an inspector with the Chicago police, to look into reports of mysterious disappearances around the White City. Inspector Wylde tries to dismiss her claims as exaggeration of an overactive imagination, but he eventually concedes to letting her go undercover as secretary to the man in question—if she takes her pistol for protection and Jude Thorpe, a policeman, for bodyguard.

My Review

I always thought if I could travel back in time, I would go to the World’s Fair. I think it would be cool to see everyone”s thoughts and feelings on things we take for granted. Since I can’t travel back in time, I love to read books set back then. The White City is a fictional story based on a true event of someone intent on kidnapping women & then murdering them. I don’t know a lot about this historical event until I read this book.  Grace Hitchcock does an amazing job with her characters. Each person was well thought out and believable. Especially Winnie! She was determined to solve the crime & does not allow society to keep her from her dreams.  It’s hard to decide who to like best. I enjoyed the mystery and the suspense of the book. It will keep you reading until the end.

I recommend this book to my family and friends.

I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion.
