The story:
Gentle and unassuming Hope Kauffman has never been one to question or try to make changes. She quietly helps her father run Kingdom Quilts and has agreed to the betrothal her father arranged for her with the devout but shy Ebbie Miller.

Despite Hope's and other Kingdom residents' attempts 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, and when one of Kingdom's own is threatened by a mysterious outsider, Jonathon is one of the first to push for the town to arm itself. Hope's fiance, Ebbie, is at the forefront of those demanding the town stay true to its traditions of nonviolence.

When strange incidents around town result in outright attacks on several townspeople, Hope can't help but question what she's always been taught. As the town that's always stood so strong together is torn apart at the seams, Hope is caught between opposing sides, both represented by those she has come to care for. With tensions high and lives endangered by an unknown threat, Hope fears Kingdom can never survive in one piece.


My thoughts:
Head back to the small town of Kingdom in this suspenseful romance by Nancy Mehl that continues where Inescapable left off. This isn't just a light-hearted "Plain" romance, there's a mysterious rash of disturbing hate crimes that take place in Unbreakable that make this book a serious nail-biter up there with the likes of books written by Irene Hannon or Diann Mills. It's easy to see why Mehl is a best-selling author. With characters you want to share a slice of apple pie or dish out some humble pie to, the story has that genuine down home, small town feel that I love. When you like characters you care about what happens to them. I was rooting for Hope, Lizzie, and the citizens of Kingdom and was genuinely concerned that the mysterious enemy would not be caught before razing the entire town. I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't a larger law enforcement presence and felt that it took away from realism of the story but otherwise I really enjoyed it and look forward to the conclusion to the series with Unforeseeable.
