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

Not one of Elizabeth Camden's better novels. Hero likes gal based on looks, Heroine seems to spend most of book on her business. I didn't feel any connection between the two.

This was a really nice read. It didn't have a lot of Christian influence or message like I had hoped, but I enjoyed it all the same. An author I will be reading more of in the future.

Elizabeth Camden creates a world you can visualize surrounding the great Chicago. She develops strong male characters that are flawed but likable. I greatly enjoyed this book.
