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. Zack Kazmarek, an influential attorney for one of Chicago's finest department stores, is a force to be reckoned with among the city's most powerful citizens. Bold and shrewd, he's accustomed to getting exactly what he wants--until he meets Mollie Knox, the beguiling businesswoman just beyond his reach. In the tumult as the people of Chicago race to rebuild a bigger and better city, Mollie comes face-to-face with the full force of Zack's character and influence. Zack believes this may finally be his chance to win her, but can Mollie ever accept this man and his whirlwind effect on her life, especially with her treasured company on the line? " A sweet, emotion-filled romance to warm the heart and touch the soul... The cast of characters is varied and lovingly detailed, colorful and bursting with life." -- Publishers Weekly " Into the Whirlwind is a delight. Elizabeth Camden shows remarkable ability to breathe life into nineteenth-century Chicago and its people. If you are a fan of historical romantic suspense, I cannot recommend this book or this author too highly."-Davis Bunn, bestselling author of Rare Earth "Camden takes readers on a breathless ride with smart, serious Mollie in the midst of tragedy and rui" -- RT Book Reviews

"CamdenÕs historical story tries to spin the lives of the people of the 57th Illinois Watch Company and HartmanÕs Department Store into the devastation of the Great Chicago Fire. An informative authorÕs note at the end of the book fleshes out the history, but the characters and love story lack life. Morgan Hallett narrates as if she is racing to get to the end before the fire engulfs her, but thereÕs little emotion or suspense in her telling. To be fair, she has little to work with. The main characters, Zach and Mollie, lack depth, or even likable personalities, and their trite path to romance is a distraction from the more intriguing part of the story, the fire and its aftermath.
