Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, her family, and her faith with plans never to return. Five years later, Lizzie finds she'll have to run again. False accusations at her job, a stalker, and a string of anonymous threatening letters have left her with no other options. This time, however, her escape is back to Kingdom, her hometown.

Though the situation might not be an average one, I could very well relate to the emotions and feelings in the book. It portraits God in an awesome way, His love and Grace despite our human failure. I enjoyed reading the book.

ruthhill74Yelm, WAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Emotionally Involving MysteryDecember 22, 2013ruthhill74Yelm, WAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5All I can say is, "This is my kind of book in the extreme!" This book has it all: romance, mystery, humor, and a strong Christian message. The characters are extremely well-developed, and every aspect of the story makes perfect sense. I honestly don't think I have a negative thing to say about this book or author.
The Christian message is very strong in this book, and it is woven so expertly into the fabric of the story. This book touched my heart as I read about how God restored everything in Lizzie's life (no spoilers--you have to read it yourself), and my faith is God was strengthened. I do not often find myself in tears as I get to the end of a book, but this one certainly did.
The romance in the book was not "put-on"; it was real. Charity was the sweetest little girl in the world, and her faith was absolutely precious. When Lizzie had to make a choice, I was not sure what choice she would make, and I am so glad she made the right one.
The mystery in this book was absolutely perfect. It took me a while to figure everything out, and I often found myself continuing to the next chapter when I should have been doing something else. I had to know what the outcome was.
I was so happy to discover that there will be a sequel to this book. I definitely want to read "the next chapter." These are some of the most delightful characters I have "met" in a while, and I could read several more volumes about them. I recommend this book highly to anyone who likes inspirational romances.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

5 years later Lizzie is in a bad situation where she loses her job and finds out that someone is stalking her. She decides to return to Kingdom hoping to find safety for her and her daughter.
Can Lizzie start over? Will her family take her back? Can she escape her stalker?
This is the first book that I've read by Nancy Mehl. I am so happy to have found her work. Nancy has a gift for story telling that grips you from the beginning of the book until the very last page. It normally takes me 3-4 days to read a novel, but I just couldn't put this one down. I finished it in two days!!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves Amish fiction.
