Olivia Newport: A Fair Dilemma

Set against the backdrop of the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, Olivia Newport’s The Dilemma of Charlotte Farrow (Revell Books) is her second Avenue of Dreams novel. “The Chicago World’s Fair represented so much of what was changing in the American landscape, and that lured me in like a sparkly new ribbon,” says Olivia. “The fair was important to Chicago, whose citizens were eager to showcase that the city was coming into its own and out of the shadow of New York. Inventions, such as the original Ferris wheel, turned into everyday language; but at the time took boldness and determination to accomplish. All of this made the exhibition the perfect backdrop for Charlotte Farrow, a young woman also coming into her own.”
