Mennonite Romantic Suspense Sure to Thrill Readers

Gentle and unassuming Hope Kauffman has never been one to question or try to make changes. She quietly helps her father run Kingdom Quilts and has agreed to the betrothal her father arranged for her with the devout but shy Ebbie Miller.

Despite Hope's and other Kingdom residents' attempts to maintain the status quo, changes have already begun to stir in the small Mennonite town. The handsome and charismatic Jonathon Wiese is the leader of the move to reform, and when one of Kingdom's own is threatened by a mysterious outsider, Jonathon is one of the first to push for the town to arm itself. Hope's fiance, Ebbie, is at the forefront of those demanding the town stay true to its traditions of nonviolence.

When strange incidents around town result in outright attacks on several townspeople, Hope can't help but question what she's always been taught. As the town that's always stood so strong together is torn apart at the seams, Hope is caught between opposing sides, both represented by those she has come to care for. With tensions high and lives endangered by an unknown threat, Hope fears Kingdom can never survive in one piece.

Back cover copy

Gentle and unassuming, Hope Kauffman has never been one to question the traditions of her Mennonite upbringing. She quietly helps her father run Kingdom Quilts and has agreed to the betrothal he arranged for her with the devout but shy Ebbie Miller. Despite the attempts of Hope and other Kingdom residents to maintain the status quo, changes have already begun to stir in the small Mennonite town. The handsome and charismatic Jonathon Wiese is the leader of the move to reform, while Ebbie insists Kingdom must remain true to its foundation. When Hope's safety is threatened by a mysterious outsider, she can't help but question what she's always been taught about the Mennonite tradition of nonviolence. As it swiftly becomes apparent the threat Hope faced is only the beginning, the town that's always stood so strong finds itself divided. With tensions high and their lives endangered by an unknown enemy, will Hope and the people of Kingdom allow fear and division to break them or will they draw on the strength of the God they serve? "This story has everything: suspense, romance, mystery and some bad guys. Its characters are well written and thought out. Mehl brings the Mennonite ways to life and shows us that sometimes we need to take a stand and let our voices be heard."--RT Book Reviews

"Like the preceding series title, Inescapable, this tale of suspense offers a colorful cast of characters, small-town drama, and a hint of romance."--Library Journal

"Mehl's take on the middle road that Mennonites choose to walk is both engaging and informative. She is able to respectfully portray a struggle foreign to most readers while at the same time providing that romantic drama readers of her prior fiction know and love."--Booklist

Our customer reviews

This is Nancy Mehl's second installment in this Mennonite series, but I have to admit that I did not enjoy this book as much as I had hoped. Don't get me wrong--she still had the suspense, the romance, and the wonderful celebration of the Mennonite faith. But I was not nearly as drawn into this book as I was the first. Like the first, it began rather slowly, but the romance story and the unsettling suspense did capture my attention. I was not as interested in Hope as I had been Lizzie (glad Lizzie was still in this one), but I did wonder whom she would marry. All I will say is that Hope did not disappoint me. No spoilers as to the romance outcome. One thing I had appreciated in the first book was the way in which the Christian faith had been woven so expertly into the story. For me, that was not nearly as strong in this book. Yes, the Christian message was there, but I didn't feel it was as focused. Not to be completely critical, I will say it followed the normal form of the first book. It started off slowly and it escalated to a high within the last portion of the book. The charm of the Mennonite community were expertly captured in this fine book, but I much prefer the first book's story to this one. Just my opinion. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.show more
