The young teacher is reluctant to participate, and Cullen has trouble keeping his mind on his lessons while intently watching her lips. Like the newly invented Ferris Wheel, he is caught in a whirl between his girl back home, his dreams as an inventor, and his unexpected attraction to his new tutor. Can he keep his feet on the ground, or will he be carried away?

Loved my trip to the fair with Deeanne Gist!
Lovely narrator although she mispronounced a couple of words. It wasn't distracting. She had the perfect voice for the herione.
He's losing his hearing and she's a teacher for the deaf.
Loved, loved, loved all the historical tidbits and that Deeanne included them in Editorial notes at the end of the book. I totally get what she is talking about--it is hard to leave a story world that you love. She takes the reader there beautifully.
Great voice as usual, fascinating characterization, unique storyline, bibliotherapy elements, and on audio--what more could I ask for?

I'm not sure how to rate or review this book. I admit to being a sucker for a good love story, but I felt the circumstances here were too contrived and the naivete of Della was unbelievable. I was thinking that the book was getting a bit tedious when the situation arose where Cullen had to "prove he was who he said he was." With that, I almost stopped listening to the book because it was beginning to feel like a not-well-done romance novel. Nevertheless, I kept listening, just for the sake of resolution, I guess.
Having been to Chicago a couple of times and having read Devil in the White City, I was initially hoping to learn a little more about Chicago or the world's fair. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to glean much information about either from this book. The author readily admits to taking historical license (and I do appreciate her telling us where she took liberties), but I felt "gypped."
