The whole world is coming to Chicago. Charlotte's whole world is coming down around her at the top of the Ferris wheel.
While the rest of Chicago focuses on the enormous spectacle of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, Charlotte Farrow's attention is entirely on one small boy-her boy-whom she has kept a secret from her wealthy employers for nearly a year.
When the woman who has been caring for her son abruptly returns him to the opulent Banning home, Charlotte must decide whether to come clean and face dismissal or keep her secret while the Bannings decide the child's fate. Can she face the truth of her past and open her heart to a future of her own? Or will life's struggles determine her path?
In choices fraught with tension between the glittering wealthy class and the hardworking servants who make their lives comfortable, Charlotte musters courage for tender and unexpected choices.
