Unbreakable by Nancy Mehl

Book two in Nancy Mehl's Road to Kingdom series, Unbreakable was, I thought, much better than book one. This time we follow Mennonite Hope Kauffman as she prepares to marry one man while feelings for another are blossoming in her heart. The town is under attack and people are fearing for their lives. Hope is trying to gain some independence and make her voice be heard but her father is over protective and doesn't want to let his 26 year old daughter have a life of her own. 
Tensions rise as the townspeople are run off the road and fires take some of their buildings.
Hope remains strong and finds the true love that she longs for.

This book had the perfect blend of romance and suspense. I look forward to the rest of the series.

From the back cover:
Gentle and unassuming, Hope Kauffman has never been one to question the traditions of her Mennonite upbringing. She quietly helps her father run Kingdom Quilts and has agreed to the betrothal he arranged for her with the devout but shy Ebbie Miller.
Despite the attempts of Hope and other Kingdom residents 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, but Ebbie insists Kingdom must remain true to its foundation. When Hope's safety is threatened by a mysterious outsider, she can't help but question what she's always been taught about the Mennonite tradition of nonviolence.
With tensions high and their lives endangered by an unknown enemy, will Hope and the people of Kingdom allow fear and division to break them or will they draw on the strength of the God they serve?
