A Historical Thriller of the 1871 GREAT CHICAGO FIRE


Shannon McCleary’s one and only dream is to live in Chicago, far from her parents and her dull prairie existence.  Now she finally has her chance, tutoring the young brother of the wealthy and striking Nathanial Collins.  The boy is a handful though, as is his disapproving family.  To be both Immigrant and Irish in 1871 is two strikes too many.  Nathanial however, sees beyond it.  He is irresistibly drawn to her intelligence, her independence, her spirit.

But a terrible fate will intercede in their blossoming love.  For it would be a hot time in the old town tonight.  It is the warmest, driest October on record.  The Great Chicago Fire will begin innocently enough, in the O’Leary Barn on the West Side.  But then the prairie winds will blow and Chicago will burn like never before.  Shannon and  Nathaniel lie directly in its voracious path.  Will they be able to escape a doomed city where only the FIREBRANDS survive?

Follow the Monstrous Conflagration that Jumps Rivers, Panics a Populace, and Consumes a Bustling City
