Book Review: Inescapable by Nancy Mehl

Inescapable by Nancy Mehl is an excellent book!  It’s about a young, single mom who runs into more problems than she bargained for in the big city.  These problems force her to return to her Old Order Mennonite family in an Old Order town.  Lizzie really has no good memories of Kingdom, Kansas and dreads going back there.  Once there, she starts to recall more than the bad things.  She discovers she even has friends there.  Will her problems find her there?  Will she have to flee the town that she’s starting to love and the man who has her heart?

By the last page of chapter two, I was hooked on this book.  I loved the mystery and intrigue.  I wasn’t sure what was going to happen next.  It was a nice blend of mystery and love. of friends, love of family, but mostly God’s love.  I strongly recommend this book to lovers of Amish fiction.  It was a nice change of pace from what I’ve become accustomed to.
