Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At 18, she left her Mennonite hometown, Kingdom, Kansas, with plans never to return. But five years later, the new life she built is falling apart. Lizzie knows she's being followed, and she's certain the same mysterious stranger is behind the threatening letters she's received. Realizing she'll have to run again, the only escape Lizzie can manage is a return to the last place she wants to go.
Once she arrives in Kingdom, Lizzie is confident she’ll be safe until she comes up with a new plan. In reacquainting herself with the town and its people - especially her old friend, Noah Housler - she wonders if she judged her hometown and her Mennonite faith too harshly. However, just as she begins to come to terms with her roots, Lizzie is horrified to discover the danger she ran from is closer than ever. No longer sure who to trust and fearful for her life and the lives of those around her, Lizzie finds she has only one place left to run - to the Father whose love is inescapable.

Great story, but the whining voices of the narration were painfully awful. In particular, the child, who never spoke in a normal tone of voice, but most character's voices were loud and whiney. Unfortunately, even though I'd love to 'read' Book 2, I will not purchase it if this same narrator is reading the story. I thought perhaps it was just me and so passed it on without comment -alas they found the same thing.
It is an honest believable story with a good message.
The most memorable of this book was to see that a person can change when he truely experiences the Love of God.
The part where Lizzy's mother made a choice to not accept the behaviour of her husband any longer.
I loved this book.
