Book Review - Inescapable

Inescapable is the first book in the Road to Kingdom series by Nancy Mehl. From the back cover: Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, her family, and her faith with plans never to return. Five years later, Lizzie finds she'll have to run again. False accusations at her job, a stalker, and a string of anonymous threatening letters have left her with no other options. This time, however, her escape is back to Kingdom, her hometown.

As Lizzie becomes reacquainted with Kingdom, she realizes she may not have left her Mennonite roots and her faith as firmly in the past as she thought. She draws on the support of Noah Housler, an old friend, as she hides out and attempts to plan her next steps. When it becomes painfully clear that the danger has followed Lizzie to Kingdom, suspicions and tensions run high, and she no longer knows who to trust. With her life and the lives of those she loves at risk, Lizzie will have to run one last time--to a Father whose love is inescapable.

My thoughts: Amish fiction is one of my favorite genres, so I really enjoyed reading this book. However if you enjoy suspense/thrillers, you will enjoy this book too. There's action all the way to the last page of the book. I can't wait to read the second book of the series to see what happens to Lizzie! I would recommend this book to anyone.

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