Katina, a Louisiana girl orphaned in the Civil War, has disguised herself as a boy and is living a hand-to-mouth life in Chicago's dangerous slums. Russell, a law school dropout, is trying to find a way to help the city's desperate poor. No sooner have they discovered each other than they must flee the Great Chicago Fire that killed more than 100 of Chicago's 334,000 people and left 100,000 homeless.

This is a very gritty book, although it ends happily for Katina and Russell.
