About The Book
What if you had the opportunity to go back in time and change history?
Based on true events of October 1871 and winner of two 2019 Eric Hoffer Book Awards, Chicago 1871 is an action-packed thriller full of romance and infused with 19th-century history that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
History comes alive after present-day firefighter, John Kirk enters a burning house in 2018 and comes out in the year 1871--the year of the Great Chicago Fire; a fire that still affects our daily lives and is commemorated each year in October as National Fire Prevention Week.
Through John's journey, he finds the love of his life, bonds with the firefighters of Engine Company 8, and meets a cast of supporting characters that you'll absolutely fall in love with.
