Book Review: Inescapable by Nancy Mehl #50bookpledge

About the Book:
Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, Kingdom, Kansas, with plans never to return.

But five years later, the new life she built is falling apart. Lizzie knows she's being followed, and she's certain the same mysterious stranger is behind the threatening letters she's received. Realizing she'll have to run again, the only escape Lizzie can manage is a return to the last place she wants to go.

Once she arrives in Kingdom, Lizzie is confident she'll be safe until she comes up with a new plan. In reacquainting herself with the town and its people--especially her old friend, Noah Housler--she wonders if she judged her hometown and her Mennonite faith too harshly. However, just as she begins to come to terms with her roots, Lizzie is horrified to discover the danger she ran from is closer than ever.

No longer sure who to trust and fearful for her life and the lives of those around her, Lizzie finds she has only one place left to run--to the Father whose love is inescapable.

My Review of the Book:

I truly did enjoy this book!  I have to say going into reading the book I really did not know much of anything about the Mennonite community.  Though like with any religious group/faith I knew that people that are going to have strong ties with the religious community and to if one turns away they would be turning away from more than just their faith.

Inescapable, was a though provoking book and really keeps the reader thinking throughout the book.  I loved the suspense within the book and I also love how strong the main character is.  I love reading books that have strong characters and especially strong female characters.  If your looking for a good book to read over the summer that is very entertaining then look no further.  I definitely recommend this book and I can not wait to read the next book!  I also have to say I found the cover of the book very drawing as well!  Many do not realize how important a cover is and I do have to say this book nailed it!
