Book Review: Unbreakable

Gentle and unassuming, Hope Kauffman has never been one to question the traditions of her Mennonite upbringing. She quietly helps her father run Kingdom Quilts and has agreed to the betrothal he arranged for her with the devout but shy Ebbie Miller.

Despite the attempts of Hope and other Kingdom residents 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, while Ebbie insists Kingdom must remain true to its foundation. When Hope’s safety is threatened by a mysterious outsider, she can’t help but question what she’s always been taught about the Mennonite tradition of nonviolence.

As it swiftly becomes apparent the threat Hope faced is only the beginning, the town that’s always stood so strong finds itself divided. With tensions high and their lives endangered by an unknown enemy, will Hope and the people of Kingdom allow fear and division to break them or will they draw on the strength of the God they serve?

This is the 2nd book in the Road to Kingdom series, I thought the first book was great, but this book surpassed the first!  The books are a stand alone read. 

As in the first book of this series, there is suspense, not the kind that will have you gripping the edge of your seat, but enough to keep you a bit on edge.  Many of the characters in the book have struggles to work through, struggles with God, with love, with the community, and if you've read Amish books you'll see some similarities as well as some differences between the two religions.

This is a very good book, especially if you're looking for a bit of winter romance with a side of suspense thrown in.  The characters are all believable, well developed and Hope is a very enjoyable character!
