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 really enjoyed everything about this book. It is another one that grab me right from the start and I couldn’t put the book down until I finished it. I feel in love with the main character and I loved seeing things through her eyes. When I read books I imagine I am there with them and I had no problems feeling like I was right there with her. I loved figuring out what was going on with her. The author does a great job of giving plenty of details but not giving away who does it. I really can’t wait to read more from her and read the other books in the series when they are released.
