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.

1. I do. Their life style for one and their devotion to God.

3. Not having any lights to read by. and a hot water heater.

Would love to read this book

I think the refrigerator/freezer might be difficult to live without. I like beverages cold and where would I keep ice cream!!!

Ice cream. Now that's a great reason for electricity! LOL!

I frequently read Amish/Mennonite books.  Their love of God comes through the writing and usually speaks to me and some instance in my life. 

Yes I read Amish books a lot. I like how they seem to lead a simple life even though I know it is not simple. I have a lot of respect for them

I'm not sure what would be the hardest. Let's face it you can have washers, refrigerators, stoves, and sewing machines even without electricity. So I guess the thing that would be the hardest to give up would be my computer.

To make my life simpler, I would get rid of a lot of "stuff!"

I am actually working on that...

Many thanks, Cindi


I like reading Amish/Mennonite books because that is what my family is! :)

I have never read an Amish or Mennonite book, but I am an avid reader of Christian fiction and should add them to my reading list. 

It would be difficult to give up my computer because that is how I talk with my grandsons who live far away.

It would be tough for me to let go of my electric toothbrush.  I have periodontal disease, and the electric toothbrush has been a lifesafer for me!

Then you definitely need electricity, Carla!

I do tend towards Amish, Mennonite books. The ones I have read are steeped in history (read some about European and Russian Mennonites - fascinating). They also have conflict - and somehow that is resolved through their faith and trust in God.
