Review-Nancy Mehl's Unbreakable

  About Unbreakable:
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?

My Review:
 
This was a very suspenseful book.  I really enjoyed it.  Nancy Mehl is a very good author and does a very good job of keeping you on the edge of your seat.  Christians in the area are being targeted by someone and the Mennonite community of Kingdom thought they were safe, but trouble finds Hope Kauffman on her way home from a shopping trip in Washington.  Then one of Kingdom’s beloved citizens is killed in a buggy accident.  Hope is engaged to Ebbie Miller, an elder in the church who doesn’t believe that the community should retaliate.  But she also has feelings for Jonathan Wiese.  He does believe the community should protect themselves in anyway appropriate.  Which one will win Hope’s heart and will Kingdom survive the attacks.
I really wasn’t surprised as to who was behind the attacks on the community, I just wasn’t sure why.  This is a book in a series, but Nancy gives enough background that it isn’t necessary to read the books in order.  I’ll have to say though; I’m looking forward to the next in the Road to Kingdom series.  Great job Nancy.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my participation in this blog tour.
