Into the Whirlwind…. Elizabeth’s Camden’s latest release!

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.
