Inescapable by Nancy Mehl

My book review today is on Inescapable, a Road to Kingdom-Book One. I love Amish Fiction and I thought this was one but it was a story of the Mennonites. I use to live by a colony of Mennonites in Missouri when I was in high school so that was great and its a mystery, what more could I want.

Elizabeth Lynn Engel is being stalked, she is receiving threatening letters, she's accused of embezzlement, she loose her job, she's without money, and fears for her daughters life. Desperate, she runs home, a of abuse, a place of shame, a place she swore she would never return to. Her mother and her friends are happy to see her but her father refuses to allow her to come home. She takes a job at the local cafe with a woman who had been a friend to her before she had ran off and is given an apartment above it.

Elder Noah Housler has returned to Kingdom, his love for Lizzie still very much alive. He tries to protect her and her daughter and help her start a new life. Lizzie's daughter Charity is fascinated by Noah as he looks just like the prince in her Sleeping Beauty book. Can an elder have a future with an unwed mother?

Clay Troyer, Charity's father returns to Kingdom wanting to be a part of Charity's life. Clay left her when she found out she was pregnant. His parents tried to force her into having an abortion. How could you trust a man like that? Could Clay be God's plan for her? Is this why God brought her here?

Torn between the two men, her father unforgiveness, a stalker, threatening letters, and trying to right by her daughter Lizzie tries to put her life back together. It is a story of faith, of restoration, of forgiveness, and of love. I enjoyed the book and recommend that you get a copy.
