Book Description: As owner of the 57th Illinois Watch Company, Mollie Knox's future looks bright until the night the legendary Great Chicago Fire destroys her beloved city. With her world crumbling around her, Mollie will do whatever it takes to rebuild in the aftermath of the devastating fire.
My Thoughts: I've read everyone of Elizabeth Camden's books and I've not been disappointed yet. But I must say that Into the Whirlwind is my favorite.
The story begins with the Chicago Fire. That horrible fire that took almost everything in its path including many a fine establishment such as Mollie's 57th Illinois Watch Company.
Six days earlier Zach (Zachariasz Kazmarek)wrote Mollie a note stating that he wanted to meet with her as an attorney. Mollie is clueless as to the reason and then the Great Fire begins.
Ironically, it's Zach who grabs Mollie's hand and practically saves her from becoming engulfed in the fire.
Mollie can't cut a head of cabbage but she is one shrewd business woman.
The relationship between Mollie and Zach is tense but with the all that they've been through together can Mollie trust Zach in this whirlwind?
A wonderful historical story that will make the reader feel almost as if she has gone through this terrible time in history.
