Inescapable By: Nancy Mehl

“When we find our destiny, it gives us confidence…but not in ourselves-it is in God, who puts us where we are supposed to be and gives us what we need to succeed.”

Lizzie Engel has run away from everything. From the home she once knew, the people she loved, and she has continued to run but now with the threat of a stalker that the police can’t do anything about and being framed for stealing money from her previous employer, to protect her daughter she finds herself running again. Although this time, it is to the one place she never expected to run back to. Back to her Mennonite roots, to her childhood home. Kingdom, Kansas is more than off the beaten path and you wouldn’t be able to find it unless you knew it was there. Now with the threat to her and her daughter Lizzie heads back to a place she felt rejected her in the past as well as a strict father and a town that did not support her.

Lizzie has come face to face with her past and realized that maybe she got it wrong, that maybe the town was not all against her and that things were changing in Kingdom, she has a place to live and a job she has realized she loves but the threats have started showing up again and whoever was after her has found her in Kingdom.

Nancy Mehl will have you glued to the pages from beginning to end. You will find yourself relating to Lizzie’s character and how we all make the mistake of jumping to conclusions and only seeing the worst in each situation. I’ve never read any Amish  or Mennonite fiction in the past but with Mehl’s writing I am sure to add more to my reading list.

I received this book complimentary from Bethany House Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
