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.

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?

Ultimately, I found myself torn between the love I felt for many of the characters and my adoration of the historical aspects of the novel and the lackluster love story. A mild recommendation is my way of compromising. The book is definitely worth reading, just don’t expect to be wowed by the love story.
