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
Gentle and unassuming Hope Kauffman has never been one to question or try to make changes. She quietly helps her father run Kingdom Quilts and has agreed to the betrothal her father arranged for her with the devout but shy Ebbie Miller.
Despite Hope's and other Kingdom residents' attempts 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, and when one of Kingdom's own is threatened by a mysterious outsider, Jonathon is one of the first to push for the town to arm itself. Hope's fiance, Ebbie, is at the forefront of those demanding the town stay true to its traditions of nonviolence.
When strange incidents around town result in outright attacks on several townspeople, Hope can't help but question what she's always been taught. As the town that's always stood so strong together is torn apart at the seams, Hope is caught between opposing sides, both represented by those she has come to care for. With tensions high and lives endangered by an unknown threat, Hope fears Kingdom can never survive in one piece.

Another wonderful well written novel set in Kingdom, KS. and there's plenty to love about this book! Suspense, danger around every corner, and romance. Someone is harrassing the local Mennonites, as the danger escalates residents must decide whether to defend themselves or to turn the other cheek. One of their own is murdered, local churches are being burned, and the community is no longer at peace.
Hope was attacked and rescued by a handsome new order Mennonite with whom she has a growing attraction. There's a world of difference between him and the man her family has intended for her to marry. One does nothing and believes God will protect them. The other finds nothing wrong in protecting themselves. Hope makes her choice and we find out who at the end of the story.
Loved the mystery that kept me guessing who the perpetrators were. Mehl's writing style keeps me wanting more and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
