Nancy Mehl Inescapable Quilt Giveaway

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:
I give Inescapable 4 out of 5 stars.  This was a great read from start to finish. It was fascinating to read about the Mennonite lifestyle and faith which differs from the Amish. I've read many books about the Amish but none about the Mennonites so it was great to get a glimpse into their world.  My family and I attend a church that is considered a Mennonite church but most people would never even realize it because it's basically a non-denominational church that started as a Mennonite church.  I've always wondered what true Mennonite's think of our church, and after reading this book I'm sure they wouldn't approve.   This book offers faith, heritage, mystery and last but not least love!

  
Thanks for reading,
