Review of Inescapable by Nancy Mehl 5 Stars!!!

Inescapable is the first book I have read by this author. I immensely enjoyed it. I do not generally read Amish or Mennonite fiction, not because I don't respect them but because I do have a very deep respect for them and I feel like most authors portray them as being regular characters with worldly struggles just like everyone else, that just so happen to live in an Amish or Mennonite community, this is not true, the Amish and Mennonite's lives are not like ours and the reason why is because they know what really matters in life and what doesn't. I know that the authors do this in an effort to make worldly people better able to relate to the characters, but me and my family attempt to live by Amish values as much as possible and it really gets under my skin when authors portray their characters as acting like and doing the same dumb things as everybody else. Okay I'm down off my soap box! Everything I just said does not apply this author, her characters are perfectly accurate Mennonite's and completely charming and believable. I was swept into this story from the first page. I loved Lizzie, I found myself relating to her a lot. I was completely in love with Noah from his first entrance in the story! Charity was absolutely adorable and reminded me so much of myself as a little girl. I also loved the suspense, my personal definition of suspense is when you don't have a clue what is going to happen next, this book is full of those kinds of twists and turns. I was completely fascinated by this book and very much look forward to the next book in the series! I highly recommend this book, even if you don't usually read books in this genre either for the above mentioned reasons or for other reasons I would encourage you to give this book a try! I loved it! The author has a new fan in me!!!

I received this book for free from Bethany House publishers in exchange for an honest review. Which I have done. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
