I received a copy of Unbreakable by Nancy Mehl in exchange for writing my review. All opinions listed are my own.
I really enjoyed the first book of Nancy’s that I ever read, which was the prequel to this book, Inescapable. When I saw that #2 had come out, I knew I wanted to read that one as well.
While Inescapable focused mainly on Lizzie Engle, Unbreakable’s main character is Hope Kaufmann, who is a very lovable character. The small town of Kingdom and it’s people’s sense of family and unity are so enjoyable to read about, as well as the Mennonite religion and traditions.
I quickly became invested in the character of Hope and shared in her concern for the safety of Kingdom. And her internal struggle as to which man God had predestined to be her husband became personal to me, as well. Unbreakable had a well-paced plot with plenty of action, drama, and suspense. The romantic aspect was a bit different than most novels in that the heroine was undecided about the two men in her life for a large part of the story.
If you have never ready any of Nancy’s books — you are in for a treat! Go grab a copy today and be sure to attend the Facebook party so you can win the Kindle Fire.
About the book:
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?
