Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Mehl’s second Road to Kingdom novel (Inescapable, 2012) brings her readers back to Kingdom, Kansas, a Mennonite town struggling to balance the tenets of faith with the ever-encroaching modern world. Hope Kauffman is wholly satisfied with her Mennonite way of life, but she begins to question church doctrine regarding violence as it becomes clear someone is targeting the people of Kingdom. Two men represent opposite sides of Hope’s wavering ideals. Ebbie Miller, Hope’s fiancée and best friend, firmly opposes the use of violence under any circumstance, choosing instead to have faith in God. Jonathon Wiese believes that God gave people the ability to defend themselves. Hope must confront her feelings on doctrine, the outside world, and the men in her life as she becomes a target of the violence. 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. --Carolyn Richard

From the Back Cover

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

Format: Paperback
Unbreakable was even better than its prequel Inescapable! The first person writing was much more smoother and the plot more engaging. It was interesting to dig deeper into the characters of Hope Kauffman, Ebenezer Miller (Ebbie), and Jonathon Wiese. I quickly became invested in the character of Hope and shared in her concern for the safety of Kingdom. And her internal struggle as to which man God had predestined to be her husband became personal to me, as well.

What I enjoyed most about this book was its spiritual thread. The question it addressed- "What does it mean to 'turn the other cheek'?"- is fascinating, to say the least. What would I do if the lives of my loved ones were endangered? Seeing the different opinions on this questions being played out so realistically in Unbreakable made it come alive for me. Just like Hope, I was torn between the two sides: nonresistance or resistance. Being "modern" (in the eyes of the Mennonites), I was fairly confident as to which argument I would side with... but my final opinion shocked even me. What's more is that the differing opinions were personified in Ebbie and Jonathon, the two people yearning for Hope's love. The author didn't shove any of the two opinions in my face; instead, she presented the two sides of the nonresistance/resistance argument and allowed me, the reader, to come to my own conclusion.

The romance was beautifully done. Not until the very end did I know who Hope chose to marry and I must say that I was very pleased with her choice:-) At first, of course, I was conflicted just as I was with the nonresistance/resistance issue, but I slowly came to realize which man was the one. Like I said before, the romance was beautifully done!

Book Summary: Mennonite Romantic Suspense Sure to Thrill Readers
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?

Review: I thought the book got better and better as I continued to read!!! It started out slow for me, about 1/3rd into the book I could not put it down. I really found the mystery fun. It was not a huge who did it but definitely `a who will Hope chose to marry.' I made up my mind and was very pleased that is the way the story went. I would have been so disappointed if it went any other way. I just could not see the outcome being satisfying had Hope's choice been different. For me I was transformed in my opinion by the halfway mark. It is a good read when how you feel changes dramatically by the end of the book.

This was a fantastic story! This one picks up a ways after Inescapable ends. This time we get to see Hope's story. Hope Kauffman is Lizzie's best friend, and she runs the quilt shop in Kingdom. She lives with her father Samuel, and is also engaged to Ebbie Miller. This one starts off with tons of action, much more action and suspense than in Inescapable, in my opinion. Someone is trying to scare the folks in Kingdom with their trucks and running people off the road. There is much talk of how can a Mennonite defend themselves and their family when they are not supposed to use guns or other weapons for violence? This becomes a very heated debate between the whole town. Amidst all of this, Hope starts to have feelings for another man and a beloved Mennonite is murdered. This was a fantastic story and kept my interest and my heart pounding throughout! Highly recommended. Great job Nancy!

The second adventure set in Kingdom, KS continues to entertain through suspense, coming of age in faith and relationships. And there's plenty of excitement to keep you reading way past your bedtime. Hope is more than the name of the heroine in Unbreakable. This fair and blonde young woman defies her vulnerable appearance as she faces hardships of her home desperately clinging to a time warp that seeks to remain apart from a world of danger. She's much stronger than those who claim positions of strength in this small, changing community of believers also struggling to come of age in their inevitably changing world. Now onto Book Three in the Kingdom Series.
