THE WHITE CITY
While their mother works long hours to pay for their room, Dora is once again left in charge of her sisters. Overwhelmed by responsibility, she worries about Lillian and Phoebe as they find jobs of their own and experience the wonders of the World's Fair -- strange new foods, foreign cultures, and incredible inventions. Seeing the sweeping changes that the turn of the century will bring makes Dora wish for a more traditional family -- until her own family is threatened in the fantasyland that will disappear at summer's end....
