Under cover of visiting the World's Fair, Violet travels to the stately Chicago home of her saintly grandmother and three eccentric great aunts. In her quest for her mother, Violet soon discovers much about faith, life, and love as she marches for women's rights, feeds slum dwellers, hob-knobs with the highfalutin, plays piano for evangelistic meetings, and ponders various marriage proposals.
Lynn Austin, multiple Christy Award-winning author of A Woman's Place, creates vivid historical settings with vibrant characters.

Just simply entertaining and FUNNY!
If you are in the mood for just a fun book, this is the one. Warning however... if you listen to this book in public, you might find yourself laughing out loud. I did that while waiting in a doctors office, ackward! LOL

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
YES-- this audiobook is fun to listen to and the story is nice and uplifting.
Any additional comments?
I had read this book previously. When I listen to audiobooks I love to listen to lighthearted stories that are fun. I also like a good voice actor to narrate. This narrator was FANTASTIC. She made the story SO fun to listen to.
This is not the typical deep Lynn Austin story. It is humorous and lighthearted vs deep and heart-wrenching. It is in first person-- which is my favorite type of audiobook to listen to. This is one I could listen to over and over again.
