This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Bethany House Publishers (February 1, 2013)
Nancy Mehl

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.

Mennonite Romantic Suspense Sure to Thrill Readers
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.

My Thoughts:
I reviewed the first installment in the Road to Kingdom series, Inescapable, last year for Bethany House.  I knew then that I was a fan of Nancy Mehl and she did not disappoint with Unbreakable!  Mehl has a special talent for telling a simple and endearing story with rich characters.  While Unbreakable is the second installment in a series, it can be read as a stand alone novel.  The story found here is one of faithfulness and forgiveness.  Mehl also sneaks in quite a bit of information about the Mennonite people that aids in the telling of the story.  You almost feel as if you are there in Kingdom along with Lizzie, Noah, Jonathan, Ebbie, and Hope.  I have fallen in love with the characters from Kingdom and can't wait for the third book.

Happy Reading,
