Engaging and interesting!
Into the Whirlwind by Elizabeth Camden is an engaging love story during the Great Chicago Fire. The information about the fire was interesting and fascinating! I loved how the main character Mollie, wanted to save her business (the 57th Illinois Watch Company) to provide a living for wounded veterans that her father had served with. I struggled with the other main character though and that’s why I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. Zach sweeps Mollie off her feet and seems heroic at first and then again at the end simmers down and I can see him as a good guy somewhat…. but in between, he seemed like a forceful, conniving, manipulative Narcissist. It was because of how Zach came off to me that I rate 4 stars instead of 5 because I love how it is written. Elizabeth Camden has a way of describing things that you forget you are reading and just get absorbed into this fictional world. I would recommend this book, just with some reservations about Zach’s personality. I received this book free from Bethany’s House, a division of Baker Publishing Group for my honest review.
