Fair Play by Deanne Gist

This book is historical fiction taking place during the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. The plot involves a woman physician and a Texas Ranger who both work at the fair. A lost baby is discovered and they take it to Hull House run by Jane Addams. Pictures of the World's Fair and/or the Hull House are at the start of each chapter. Being a fan of "The Devil in the White City," I am always fascinated with any fiction or non fiction related to the World's Fair. I did learn more about the living conditions of the poor in the city and the work of Miss Addams. The story was engaging but I appreciated the historical aspect more than the love story.
