Shadows of the Windy City

The Windy City Saga #2

by Jocelyn Green

Releases February 2, 2021

Amazon 👒 Goodreads

I adore Jocelyn Green’s novels. They are always so well written and the research is impeccable. I always feels transported in time when I read one of her stories. Green is a masterful storyteller, so when I pick up one of her books I am guaranteed an engaging, fast-paced escape. I absolutely loved the first novel in this series and cannot wait for Shadows of the White City to release.

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?

Join the fun!

What’s a book that you can’t wait to get your hands on?

  1. Ok! I’ll add my must get for this title! I was just told I’m on the Launch Team for this one!
    Love history about Chicago. I grew up in a city about 35 miles from there. We used to take field trips there in school.
