From the very opening sentences through to the very satisfying ending this book was a pleasure to listen to. Molly and Zach's love/hate relationship was fun, frustrating and ultimately very real. I plan to listen again.
The descriptions of the firestorm that consumed the city. Those chapters were so well written.
Great narration! I am now a fan!!
I do not usually listen to things about true historical events, but was immediately caught up in the Great Chicago Fire and details of watchmaking. Both Mollie and Zach were believable characters for me.
I appreciated the day to day struggles of the many people from different walks of life being forced together as they try to rebuild their lives. I especially found it interesting that the mayor of the city sent out telegrams across the country asking for help from neighboring cities (a practice that still happens today). I enjoyed the actual historical details at the end of the book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the narrative and would look for this narrator in the future.
I appreciated that Molly cared about her employees as family and was determined to keep her business going to protect them. Even if some of her actions were misguided, her heart was in the right place.
I was caught up in the storyline immediately and even though the action slowed, it was a realistic portrayal of the rebuilding stages in the aftermath of great tragedy.
