Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Fair playTitle to be discussed: Fair play by Deeanne Gist.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, February 14, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "'Fair play' is a historical love story about a lady doctor and a Texas Ranger who meet at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. Saddled with a man's name, the captivating Billy Jack Tate makes no apologies for taking on a man's profession. As a doctor at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, she is one step closer to having her very own medical practice--until Hunter Scott asks her to give it all up to become his wife.... He has no patience for big cities and women who think they belong anywhere but home.... Despite their difference of opinion, Hunter and Billy find a growing attraction between them--until Hunter discovers an abandoned baby. He and Billy team up to make sure this foundling isn't left in the slums of Chicago. As they fight for the underprivileged children in the Nineteenth Ward, an entire Playground Movement is birthed. But when the Fair comes to an end, one of them will have to give up their dream. Will Billy exchange her doctor's shingle for the domesticated role of a southern wife, or will Hunter abandon the wide open spaces of home for a life in the "gray city, " a woman who insists on being the wage earner, and a group of ragamuffins who need more than a playground for breathing space?"
