I had chosen to read Inescapable, which is the first book in the Road to Kingdom series, last July (2012). I enjoyed the book very much and had been looking forward to the day that Unbreakable, Nancy Mehl's next book would be available.
It was worth the wait. Nancy again had me turning pages late into the night, as well as, looking forward to the next chance I had to pick up the book to find out what would happen next.
I felt connected to the people of Kingdom and wanted find out who would want to hurt these gentle people. I also wanted to know why and who was behind the burning of the churches outside of Kingdom. Up until now evil hadn't come into this peaceful Mennonite town, but would that change? The people in Kingdom were God-fearing, and non-violent. Were they easy targets? How would the residents of Kingdom react, and would they hold tight to their beliefs, even if someone they loved was in danger? I asked myself these questions as I read; and I have to say that Nancy did an amazing job of using her characters to explore these long held Anabaptist beliefs. The story was exciting and very believable.
I highly recommend Unbreakable, and it is okay if you haven’t read Inescapable because each book works well as a stand alone.
I now look forward to Nancy Mehl’s next book in the Road to Kingdom series Unforseeable.
About the Book:
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?
