Mollie Knox is the owner of the 57th Illinois Watch Company
which she inherited from her father.
She has a big heart for her employee's and wants the best for them.
The future looks bright for the watch company until the Great Chicago Fire
destroys her store and her beloved city.
In the aftermath of the fire, Mollie is left with several difficulties
including two men that are trying to win her heart.
She likes life to be predictable and routine.
Richard seems perfect for her - handsome, rich, kind, predictable.
Mollie lets herself be courted by this wonderful man,
but Zack has other ideas...
As an influential attorney in Chicago,
Zack Kazmarek is quite the force to be reckoned with.
He has worked his way up in the business world and is used to getting what he wants,
but then he meets Mollie Knox, the woman that intrigues him but keeps him at arms length.
Zack looses his heart to Mollie, but Richard is in the picture
and Mollie seems infatuated with him.
Who will win sweet Mollie's heart?
Into The Whirlwind is just that, a whirlwind!
When I started the book I was swept up into the story,
but then I came to the middle of the book and I struggled with interest to read it
because it seemed drawn out in some areas and maybe a little repetitive.
Towards the end the book picked its pace back up and I was eagerly turning the pages to finish.
It was interesting to read about the Great Chicago Fire
and I think Elizabeth Camden did an excellent job portraying the fire before and after.
There were many hardships the people of Chicago endured
and Elizabeth brings many of them to light in the book.
I admired Mollie's strength and passion for taking care of her 57th employee's
and I enjoyed the "fight" between the two men trying to win Mollie's heart.
I was guessing until the end as to who would win.
