Summary
Half-Chinese Ernest Young, a charity student at a boarding school, is astounded to learn he will be raffled off-- a healthy boy 'to a good home' -- at Seattle's 1909 World's Fair. The winning ticket belongs to the madam of a high-class brothel, famous for educating her girls. Ernest becomes the new houseboy and befriends Maisie, the madam's daughter, and a bold scullery maid named Fahn. They form the first real family Ernest has ever known. Fifty years later, in the shadow of Seattle's second World's Fair, Ernest struggles to help his ailing wife reconcile who she once was with who she wanted to be, while trying to keep family secrets hidden from their grown-up daughters

Summary
Ford excels at historical fiction, especially set in the Pacific Northwest. In this tale, the reader follows the life of Ernest Young, experiencing the early 1900s in Seattle. He is raffled off in the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exhibition. The story then follows adult Ernest as the 1962 Seattle World's Fair opens. Rich with historical detail and touching on a time period not widely known (the wilds of Seattle's early days), this moving story comes together and draws the reader in. -- Alissa Williams for LibraryReads
