"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."
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love Amish fiction and I also love suspense as well. This book takes both of those and rolls them into one amazing read! It grabs you within the first few pages. Lizzie is one tough cookie who has had alot to deal with. Having left her Mennonite community years earlier to escape criticism and rejection, Lizzie is forced to return and hide once she begins to receive mysterious letters threatening her. Lizzie is quite jaded towards those in her old community, but is quickly taken in by a kindly woman. This book is definitely a great read!! Anxiously awaiting the second book early next year!! (And frankly it can't come soon enough!!)
