Nancy Mehl


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Nancy Mehl lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband Norman and their dog, Watson. She’s authored thirteen books and is currently at work on her newest series for Bethany House Publishing.

All of Nancy’s novels have an added touch – something for your spirit as well as your soul. “I welcome the opportunity to share my faith through my writing,” Nancy says. “It’s a part of me and of everything I think or do. God is number one in my life. I wouldn’t be writing at all if I didn’t believe that this is what He’s called me to do. I hope everyone who reads my books will walk away with the most important message I can give them: God is good, and He loves you more than you can imagine. He has a good plan especially for your life, and there is nothing you can’t overcome with His help.”

She and her husband attend Believer’s Tabernacle in Wichita.


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 Thoughts on This Book:

This new series begins in Kansas City following the life of young Lizzie Engel and her daughter Charity. After threatening letters, a man following her, and her employer suspeccting her of stealing, she flees to her hometown of Kingdom. A small secluded Old Order Mennonite town.

Her past comes rushing back to her as she re-enters her childhood home. Realizing the reasons she left five years earlier after feeling abandoned by her overly strict father, and the feelings of being shunned by the townfold when they find out she had a child out of wedlock.

All these feelings come back as she tries to start over in Kingdom. But can she? The man that was following her finds her in Kingdom and the notes continue. Is she safe? Her daughter's father returns in her life and her childhood best friend Noah does too. What will God have her do? Very well written, a good touch of suspense, a little romance and an excellent plot. Can't wait to read the next book in this series!

I recieved this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review of this book. No other compensation was given.
