Today‘s Prompt: CHICAGO

When I hear Chicago, I always think of Renee Rosen‘s FAB books.

Glamor, glitter, love, shopping, and ​famous names thrown around...what fun it was reading WHAT THE LADY WANTS.

WHAT THE LADY WANTS is set in Chicago during the 1800's when retail stores and innovations were beginning to surface.

TODAY'S PROMPT: SHOPPING

This book tells of the founder of Marshall Fields Department Store and his love affair with Delia Spencer. WHAT THE LADY WANTS was a great read - I always enjoy Renee Rosen's books.

Mehso-so

Having grown up with Marshall Field's as the go-to-store, I was excited to listen to this one! It was a bit more of a romance novel than I expected, and not quite as Chicago-centric as I had hoped for, either- but it was entertaining! The first Mrs. Field sure sounds #Toxic #Audiobook #AudioColoring #AugustGrrrl @Cinfhen

If, like me, you love historical fiction set in Chicago, you must know about @reneerosen_ . For #womenshistoryreads I recommend WHAT THE LADY WANTS, a sweeping tale of 1870s-1890s Chicago through the lens of socialite Delia Spencer & her love affair with Marshall Field. Renee & I are doing a joint event at Women & Children First on April 13th -- can't wait to talk Chicago history in Chicago! #womenwriters #historicalfiction

lynneamch Oooh. Sounds good and I see she's a Litten, too! Stacking and following now. 🖒 3y
