Elizabeth CamdenABOUT THE AUTHOR:

A research librarian and associate professor, Elizabeth Camden has a master’s in history from the University of Virginia and a master’s in library science from Indiana University. She has published several articles for academic publications and is the author of four nonfiction history books. Her ongoing fascination with history and love of literature have led her to write inspirational fiction. Elizabeth lives with her husband in central Florida.


After her father’s death, Mollie Knox takes over his watchmaking company and uses her head for business to solidify the good name of the 57th Illinois Watch Company. Her future looks bright until the night her beloved city is destroyed in the legendary Great Chicago Fire. With her world crumbling around her, Molly must do whatever it takes to save her company in the aftermath of the devastating fire.

Zack Kazmarek is an influential attorney with powerful ties to the political, mercantile, and ethnic roots of Chicago. His only weakness is Mollie Knox, a woman who has always been just beyond his reach. However, all bets are off after the fire destroys Chicago, and Mollie is in desperate need of assistance. Just as Zack finally begins to pursue the woman he loves, competition arises in the form of a hero from her past who can provide the help she needs to rise from the ashes.

While Mollie struggles to rebuild, the two men battle for her heart. One has always loved her, but the other has the power to save her. In the race to rebuild the city, can she survive with her business and her heart intact?


I love Elizabeth Camden books and Into the Whirlwind was another awesome historical story from this wonderful author! I really enjoy how she makes history come alive within the pages of her book, just as she did in Mollie and Zack’s story. Mollie lost everything in the great Chicago fire of 1871, and the descriptions of the fire, firefighters, and everything that was involved was amazing and so very interesting. I was so into the story I felt like I was living the story right along with the characters, and especially Molly. She is such an amazing young lady, and I hurt with her as she struggles with losing everything that reminded her of her father. And the tension and struggles between Mollie and Zack kept me reading faithfully until the very last word!

If you enjoy historical fiction, this is one you do not want to miss!  I received this book from the publisher Bethany House and CFBA to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
