Book Review: Into the Whirlwind by Elizabeth Camden

Molly Knox wakes up every morning looking forward to her predictable, orderly life. She loves making watches and as the owner of the 57th Illinois Watch Company, she is proud to carry on her father's work. But when the Great Chicago Fire strikes and takes everything away from her, Molly will have to keep her wits about her to survive.
Zach Kazmerak is a powerful attorney working for one the largest department stores in Chicago. He is a loyal employee and works hard to earn his reputation for getting things done. Now he must go up against Molly Knox, which is a problem, since he has admired her since he first set eyes on her.
As Molly and Zach work to get through the time of terrible disaster, they must learn to trust each other despite their opposite personalities.

This is the third book I have read by Elizabeth Camden and I have really enjoyed all of them. She really can bring history alive and make you feel like you are immersed right in the culture of the time. Her descriptions of the Chicago fire were amazing and I enjoyed also the look into the advances of machinery and technology at the time. Loved it!

Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for a free copy of this book to review.
