I have a hard time passing up the chance to review modern-day Amish/Mennonite fiction. I think it's because I long for a simpler life! I had already read and loved the first book in the 'Road to Kingdom' series 'Inescapable'..so I just had to get my hands on 'Unbreakable'! I've gotta say that I'm really enjoying the romantic suspense theme! Now this wasn't one of those gobbled-it-up-in-one-sitting books, but it was definitely still enjoyed thoroughly! I loved all the twists and turns and 'whodunnit' in this book..I was totally off till the very end! I can't wait for the next one!
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?
