Well done! I enjoyed how the author wrote the novel around the Chicago Fire of 1871. I could sense the events of the fire unfolding and people’s reactions were very realistic. I felt like I was there!
Mollie is a watch maker in Chicago. Join her as she struggles to get the shop back up and running while learning many lessons. Zack is a lawyer who made it out of poverty with the help of Louis Hartman. As the great Fire starts Mollie and Zack must get to safety. Along the way they pick up a few people. Can they make it through the fire? Will the nightmares end? Can the 57th Illinois Watch Company reopen and survive? Will Sophie ever find her family? Can Zack come to terms with his Polish heritage? Will they find the person responsible for an untimely death? Is Zack or Colonel Lowe the man for Mollie?
I read the electronic version of this book and once again there was a problem with the letter “f,” in various places throughout the text the letter would be missing.
I enjoyed this novel and am pleased to give it a four star rating.
