ABOUT BOOK: 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 fiancé, 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.

I have only recently started reading Amish books and am enjoying them.   They are a simpler people with a profound trust in God, yet they have so many of the same struggles that we all face.    Their lives seem to highlight the pull of the "English World" against their world --- much like what we face with the pull of the "worldly world" against our own faith and standing true to the Lord in the world we live. 


2. If you changed one thing in an attempt to make your life simpler, what would it be?

Megabucks would simplify my life.  One less thing to worry about as Forrest Gump would say.  :D

I think the hardest thing to give up would be my cell phone.

Where I live, our well is run off of electricity.  And I would say that would be the worst part of no electricity would be no easy access to water.  I once went a week without electricity and I would say the lack of indoor plumbing was by far the worst of it.

I don't always read Amish/Mennonite themed books.  I love reading different kinds of Christian fiction such has historical,  some suspense, and some contemporary.  When I read and Amish/Mennonite theme book, it has to be one that has a different plot from most.  I love unusual story themes and this one is definitely different.

The hardest thing for me to give up for lack of electricity would be my Kindle! Not being able to access my 20,000+ books would be a crying shame...
Hi NANCY!!! I Luved Inescapable and am super excited about UNBREAKABLE!!!
I'll answer #2 OWN LESS STUFF!!!
I LUV the simplicity of the Amish. We have become a very very materialistic people these days!
For some, the more we own the emptier we feel...and that is so sad!
Downsizing, giving more to other people in need, and just making a simpler life by what we own, I think would make us happier!!!

You all have such great answers. A little worried about Nancy and her 20,000 eBooks though! LOL! Every time I'm asked about the electricity issue, my first thought is air conditioning. I'm such a wimp when it comes to heat. As you can imagine, I'm not a summer person! In my Road to Kingdom series, electricity is just making its entrance when the series wraps up. Most Conservative Mennonite communities have electricity. They're not as strict as the Amish. I do think it would benefit all of us to turn off the television, get off our phones, and walk away from our computers for a few hours a day. I wonder if sometimes God is trying to get our attention over all the noise. Usually, it's when we're quiet that we hear His voice.

#3 It would be my computer. I might go through withdrawals. =)

1.  I enjoy reading Amish/Mennonite books because of their simpler way of life.

2.  In order to make my life and my family's life simpler, I'd give up electronic devices . . cell phones, internet, ipads and go back to the "old" way with just a land-line phone, and that way other things aren't competing for attention.

 

I read Amish novels because of their purity and the simle life they need. Knowing they face alot of the same problems we do is very interesting also. Some days i wish i could be amish but their is so many reasons i could not such as being submissive to a man. I am to set in my ways and too outspoken

I love Amish fiction, it is admirable the way they live such a hard but simple life.
