This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Bethany House Publishers (July 1, 2012)
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.


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.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Inescapable, go HERE.

My Thoughts: Lizzie left Kingdom or rather ran from Kingdom when having her daughter Charity out of wedlock in the strict Mennonite community with a unloving, uncaring father made her feel she had no other choice. She made a life for her and her daughter, Charity away from Kingdom. She had a job she loved, was going to college until a stalker appeared and money disappeared from work and it looked like she was going to be the prime suspect. When she gets home she reconnects with her mother who is Oh so happy to see her, and loves on Charity. Her father still doesn't want to have anything to do with her. She begins working at the diner that the Elders did not want in Kingdom, and soon her old friend Noah is coming in and Charity latches on to him, calling him Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty. Charity loves Kingdom and all the people, especially Cora who runs the diner. She wants to stay forever.
Just when things start feeling safe, it seems danger is back. Will Lizzie run, or begin to trust her Heavenly Father that she can't escape from no matter how far she runs?
This is the first Nancy Mehl book I've read and it won't be my last! I absolutely loved it! I felt like I was right there in Kingdom it was so vivid and the characters were so real.
