From the Back Cover
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.
"Mehl does a remarkable job of showcasing the lifestyle of the Mennonites against the backdrop of a modern mystery as Lizzie revisits her roots and has a chance to heal childhood wounds. Any reader with a difficult past will appreciate the way Mehl gently removes layers of old lies and insecurities, leaving Lizzie whole again while, as in most small-town tales, featuring a cast of colorful and endearing characters along with a few unsavory types. The uniqueness of Mennonite living makes this story a refreshing change from Amish romances and mainstream contemporary suspense." --Booklist
"Mystery and intrigue surround richly detailed characters fighting both for their lives and to right wrongs. Suspenseful without being over the top, this is a story with many twists and turns and will keep readers guessing until the end." -Romantic Times
"Like the preceding series title, Inescapable, this tale of suspense offers a colorful cast of characters, small-town drama, and a hint of romance. A sure bet for fans of Hannah Alexander." --Library Journal

I was given a copy of this book for my honest review.
* This book was free from Bethany House publishing in exchange for a review.
Lizzie felt she would never be forgiven by the towns people or her father, an elder in the Mennonite church, for being an unwed mother. So, one night she left the town of Kingdom to make a new home for herself and her daughter Charity in Kansas City. After receiving threatening letters and being stalked, Lizzie begins to think the safest place for her and her daughter, might be the place she never thought she would return to--Kingdom. When Lizzie is falsely accused of stealing from her company and fired, she decides that despite the possible reactions by the people in Kingdom, she needed to do what would be best for her daughter, and return to Kingdom.
Just as Lizzie and Charity are adjusting to their new life back in Kingdom, and begin to feel a sense of forgiveness and security, Lizzie spots the man she had seen stalking her in Kansas City and realizes she and Charity are still not safe. Now what should she do? Should she run away again?
Just as you begin to think that you have things figured out, Nancy Mehl throws in another twist! I loved the way she drew me into the story and I didn't want to put the book down until I was finished. Then I couldn't wait to get the second book, so I could read more about the interesting people, who lived in Kingdom. I will gladly grab any other books written by Ms. Mehl!
Lizzie, the prodigal daughter, is NOT welcomed home by Pa, as per the Biblical story. Why did she think life in Kingdom would be safe--after the abrupt run from town several years ago? Now the single mom carries moral & legal baggage. Readers will forgive Lizzie's indiscretions and fall and fall in love with Charity faster than her fictional grandparents.
A Christian novel showing God is bigger than fundamentalist elders. But would God allow romance into a life filled with so much trouble? Lizzie fiercely angered her dad, but would he kill? A many layered piecing of suspense, not unlike the stitching of a...sure, Mennonite's quilt!
Man-lit alert: the last chapter gets a bit chic-lit `romancie', but then, by that time you've fallen in love with Lizzie and Charity yourself. If I already didn't have the best REAL wife in the world, I'd have married this fictional wayward gal myself.
Author Mehl's no beginner. She knows how to mix murder, suspense, adventure, characters, and romance to Mennonite perfection.
Amish readers will like this.
