Book Reveiw - Unbreakable


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?

Nancy Mehl lives in Wichita, Kansas, with her husband Norman and her very active puggle, Watson. She's authored fourteen books and is currently at work on a new series for Bethany House Publishing. All of Nancy's novels have an added touch - something for your spirit as well as your soul. "I welcome the opportunity to share my faith through my writing," Nancy says. "God is number one in my life. I wouldn't be writing at all if I didn't believe that this is what He's called me to do. I hope everyone who reads my books will walk away with the most important message I can give them: God is good, and He loves you more than you can imagine. He has a good plan for your life, and there is nothing you can't overcome with His help." Readers can learn more about Nancy through her Web site: She is also active on Facebook.
Nancy Mehl has become one of my favorite authors. I read her book, "Inescapable" and loved it and I feel the same way about this amazing book! She has a way of weaving a story from page one that draws you in and makes you want to know the characters more and what is going to happen to them next. 
This is book two in the "Road To Kingdom" series and it brings us back to revisit some of our favorite characters from the first book, "Inescapable". Don't fret if you didn't read the first book in the series, though. You will not be lost at all - however - you may want to run out and pick up the first book when you're done with this one just because the book is so good!
From page one we are sitting on the edge of our seat as the community of Kingdom, Kansas, and it's surrounding area, is threatened by some unknown person or persons who have a grudge against Christians. There are threats in the form of buggies being forced off the road, as well as fires being set in Christian churches and homes. There is also some conflict regarding how to handle these threats. Hope, herself, is threatened!

I enjoyed Hope's dilemma with the two different men in her life and her feelings towards them. She is engaged to a fellow Mennonite, however, she is also intrigued by a more modern man. I also loved seeing her react to things from a godly woman's perspective. She was very easy to like and I instantly was drawn into her story.

This is a great book! I enjoyed it immensly and highly recommend it!
