    Absolutely loved the setting (Great Fire of Chicago and its aftermath) and the cast of characters in this novel. Having such a fascination with the Civil War, I was delighted that the heroine runs a watchmaking company that employed wounded veterans of her father's regiment. That endeared the book to me from the beginning, and it only got better from there. Love the history that went into this novel, and how vividly it was portrayed. Beyond the main romance and the plot for the heroine to reshape her work after the fire, other subplots addressed several important life truths in ways that supported rather than distracted from the overall story arc. This novel was a pleasure to read from the first page to the last.

    This review was written for Into the Whirlwind - eBook.
    Chicago's late 1800s history abounds in this novel by Elizabeth Camden! I learned things about the Great Chicago Fire that I had never imagined. You will feel the desperation of Mollie to care for the men from the Civil War company with whom her father served. You will also feel how attorney, Zack, is torn between his loyalty to his mentor and employer and his love for Mollie. I was not certain how the book would end but was happy with the conclusion! I highly recommend Into The Whirlwind to anyone who likes historical fiction.

    I won Into The Whirlwind from a Kate Beslin giveaway!

    This is a well written novel with admirable historical research. The characters were developed to the extent that I still miss them weeks after I finished the book.

    I LOVED this story. It is one of Ms. Camden's BEST yet! As I read "Out of the Whirlwind" it was as if it was ME running thru the streets of Chicago during the legendary Big Fire of the 1800's seeking help and direction. Elizabeth Camden describes in such detail the effects of the fire throughout it's progress rampaging the great city of Chicago and the main characters affected. It is a wonderful story of bravery, endurance, passion and faith. As usual she doesn't disappoint in any aspect. This is a book that you won't, no, CANNOT put down!

    A young woman oversees a unique watch factory in 1871 Chicago. The obstacles Mollie Knox has faced running the company her father started pale amidst the devastation of the Great Chicago Fire. How can Mollie survive, and what will happen to the Civil War veterans they employ?

    Zack Kazmarek, an important attorney employed by Hartman's Department Store, appears to be Mollie's savior—rescuing her during the fire and supervising the offer to buy her business. But can he be trusted? The wealthy Polish man came from humble origins, which his parents continue to maintain.

    The unlikely pair are drawn together, yet another suitor emerges to try to win Mollie's hand. Should she choose the war hero her father's company admires who sweeps in and comes to her aid or the lawyer who sacrifices himself for her without her knowledge? Or should she remain a single businesswoman and keep the watchworks going? Challenges abound, but Mollie manages to work her way through them and grow ever stronger in this exciting historical novel.
