Book Description:

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 Overall Feeling of the Book:

I made sure to read Book #1 of this series, Inescapable, so that I would have the full background and effect while reading this book.  I'm so glad I did, because there was so much that I understood that I might not have if I hadn't read the first book.  I recommend that you do.

This book was FULL of suspense.  Nancy Mehl has a serious talent for grabbing your attention and drawing you in.  I honestly did not have the mystery figured out.  I enjoyed that so much.  I really don't like when the mysteries are so obvious that I have them solved by half-way through the book.

Excellent read!

A Brief Excerpt:
I turned to stare at him.  "Why would God want us to be defenseless?  Like lambs led to the slaughter?"
 Page 129

The Cover:

This cover "covers" a lot of the aspects of this story.  I love that I had a face to put with Hope.  I also like how this series has a split cover.  It is really eye-catching.

Other Notes:

~I think you will enjoy this book more if you read the first book of the series beforehand.

~This book contains fabric and quilts!

~I'm not sure when the next book comes out, but it will be on my wishlist :)
