Book Reiew: Into the Whirlwind by Elizabeth Camden

I love historical fiction novels - especially if they have a spiritual undertone.  Into the Whirlwind was captivating.  I loved reading about the emotional, physical and spiritual ramifications of the Chicago fire.  I loved reading about a woman business owner in the 1870s.  I loved reading about the minute details of watch-making and clock-making.  I loved reading the wisdom of a woman wrestling to understand the passions and longings of her heart.  I loved reading about characters struggling to find their sense of purpose in life.  I loved reading about camaraderie and friendship in times of hardship.

Can you tell that I loved this book?  I couldn't put it down.  It went with me to soccer soccer practice and carpool lines.  I read while my hubby watched football and a movie.  I even woke up early to read one morning (definitely not a norm for me!)

It has romance, but it's very clean.  I would recommend this book to any female reader age 14+.  It would be a great novel for teens to read with a mentor or a mom, because there are so many great conversations that could stem from the book.

I can't wait to read more rom Elizabeth Camden!

I received this book as a gift from Bethany House, in exchange for my honest review.
