A Proper Pursuit

Full Product Description

Another piece of memorable historical fiction from the critically-acclaimed and award-winning Lynn Austin.

When Violet Hayes ventures to Chicago during the time of the World's Fair, her one goal is to find her mother, who has been missing from her life since she was nine. Naive, impressionable and highly imaginative (having secretly ingested a diet of romance novels and true crime stories at school), Violet stays in Chicago under the care of her grandmother and her three great aunts. It is here that her perspectives on life are opened as she is exposed to the world about her - from high society to immigrant families; from the suffragette movement to the security of a suitable marriage match. As Violet contemplates what course her life will take, she will discover the missing parts of her family's past - and, ultimately, Violet will discover herself.

Lynn Austin has won three Christy Awards for her historical fiction which includes titles such as A Woman's Place, All She Ever Wanted, Eve's Daughters and Wings of Refuge. One of these novels, Hidden Places, has also been made into a Hallmark Channel film.

A Proper Pursuit by Lynn Austin was published by Bethany House in September 2007 and is our 30417th best seller. The ISBN for A Proper Pursuit is 9780764228919.
