This is the second book in this series and I am loving it! The first book was wonderful and the second book brings back all the characters from Kingdom as they are being preyed upon and put in danger. We got an insight into Hope Kauffman and her father and yet we still got to catch up with Lizzie from book one. One of the best things about Unbreakable is that I wasn't sure until the end of the book who Hope would fall for. Ebbie or Jonathan... it was back and forth the whole time - not predictable like a lot of books I've been reading. And Nancy does a great job with the mystery aspect of the book, I had my suspicions about who was doing the terrorizing and killing, but I wasn't sure and I was only partly right. I am really looking forward to another visit to Kingdom with book three.

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.”

ABOUT THE 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 fiance, 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.
