I bought this book *months* ago, but I’m so behind on my reading. I don’t know if it’s Covid or what, but I have read fewer books this year than any year I can remember. Here’s hoping 2021 reverses that trend!
A good start to a new series by a favorite author! It’s a look inside the tragedy of the Great Chicago Fire and how it impacted the lives of two sisters and their Civil War veteran father. Loved the imagery, which took me to Chicago in 1871 and steeped me in that atmosphere. The characters were charming and diverse, each with their own backstory and quirks. The story is one of learning to lean on God rather than ourselves. There is no “perfect” ending – as there generally isn’t in life – but there is a very satisfying one. Well worth reading.
