Book Review: Inescapable

About the Book:
Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, Kingdom, Kansas, with plans never to return.

But five years later, the new life she built is falling apart. Lizzie knows she's being followed, and she's certain the same mysterious stranger is behind the threatening letters she's received. Realizing she'll have to run again, the only escape Lizzie can manage is a return to the last place she wants to go.

Once she arrives in Kingdom, Lizzie is confident she'll be safe until she comes up with a new plan. In reacquainting herself with the town and its people--especially her old friend, Noah Housler--she wonders if she judged her hometown and her Mennonite faith too harshly. However, just as she begins to come to terms with her roots, Lizzie is horrified to discover the danger she ran from is closer than ever.

No longer sure who to trust and fearful for her life and the lives of those around her, Lizzie finds she has only one place left to run--to the Father whose love is inescapable.

My Opinion
Although this is another Mennonite/Amish novel among many these days, it's story line really stood out as unique and different compared to the numerous other similar books that are available.

I loved the story line about a Mennonite woman leaving and then wanting to come back and enjoying the life back in her Mennonite town. There is just something special about a close-knit community so I really related with Lizzie and wanting to raise her daughter near family and friends who care! It sure makes life a lot easier!

The book was really well written and had a little of everything...romance, suspense, mystery, crime, humor and so much more all rolled into one great book!

I really enjoyed this book even though I tend to stay away from Amish/Mennonite genre lately because they all seem to be the same! This one definitely is NOT and was great to read!
