Book Review--Unbreakable

by Nancy Mehl

Unbreakable is the second in a series titled 'Road to Freedom' by Nancy Mehl.  I did not read the first, but I enjoyed this book.  Unbreakable is a light and easy read about the fictional Mennonite community of Kingdom and their struggle in how to deal with violence directed at their community.  The story moves along at a good pace and there is plenty of action along with twists and turns in the story to keep you interested and turning pages. The main character is Hope Kauffman whom, with her father, runs a quilt shop.  Hope is engaged to Ebbie Miller, but also finds herself attracted to community member Jonathon Wiese as well.  Hope wrestles with her Mennonite upbringing and its steadfast tradition of nonviolence, even as members of her community die and their homes and churches are vandalized.  Ebbie supports the traditional view and Jonathan looks to reform the church and the community a bit.  As Hope and the people of Kingdom work to solve the mystery of what is happening around them, she also finds clarity in which man she wants to spend the rest of her life with.
