Inexcapable by Nancy Mehl
Publisher's blurb: 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.
My Review: Overall, I liked this book. I was a bit leery of it from the character on the cover & her "deer in the headlights" look. I assumed she would be portrayed as weak & meek. Not so. Although a little nieve, I liked Lizzie & her daughter.
The story was relatively fast paced as in it didn't bore me with info I didn't need. It was engaging and I read it in two days' worth of train trips to work. I would definitely recommend it to others.
It is the first book in a series, so there is more to come (although the 2nd book Unbreakable, has an even worse cover picture! She doesn't look innocent (if that was the look they were going for), she looks daft!)
