    230 pages

    This 230 page, free book is well edited. It is well edited and as a Bethany House Christian publication it is a very clean book, without any for adults only themes. This a mystery romance. There are a few tiny bits of violence. When I down loaded this book, I took a quick glance at the review ratings. I was impressed by the mostly 4 star reviews, I do not read them, until after I read the book, because there are so many plot spoilers. I have to agree with the 3 star reviews. This book was hard to get into and not what I expected. It was more a accepting modern ways book with a bad man stalker thrown in. For ages 15 and up.

    Lizzie is a young woman who left her Mennonite community and ove

    Lizzie is a young woman who left her Mennonite community and overbearing father after becoming a single mother. When she is falsely accused of a crime and begins to receive threatening letters, she returns home hoping to prevent her daughter being removed from her or harmed. Lizzie's return home is met with many surprises...

    I wanted to like this book. I usually enjoy Amish/Mennonite fiction, and was very interested in this one after reading the description. However, I just couldn't get into it. The characters were likeable, the plot was interesting with a couple surprises, and the message was a good one.

    I was interested in the mystery part of the book and kept reading so that I could find out who the guilty party was. Mehl set up the plot so that the guilty person was one of two people, so it was a 50/50 toss up. I think that might have been what I didn't like about this book, for a mystery, there wasn't a lot of suspense. I knew the culprit was one of two people, and it was just a matter of finding out which one.

    If you are looking for a non-typical Mennonite fiction, you might enjoy this one, but it wasn't great for me. However, a lot of other reviewers loved it, so give it a try!

    Lizzie, a single parent, is being stalked. To further complicate

    Lizzie, a single parent, is being stalked. To further complicate her life, she is falsely accused of criminal activity at her workplace. She decides that she must take her child and go into hiding. This concept had me hooked at the beginning of this novel, but unfortunately, there wasn't enough to reel me in. The plot flounders and the end is quite unbelievable.

    Characters are flat. Charity, a six-year-old still takes naps, yet, most every night, she can hardly keep her eyes open. She is content to sit all day and color. Hmm, I don't remember my children acting like this. Matthew Engels, Lizzie's super stern father, causes anyone in his presence to tremble whenever he glares their way. The entire town is afraid of him; although he's an elder in the church, he is without friends. Somehow, he softens so as to become a marshmallow-like; why, at one point, he even has tears coursing down his face (286).

    Perhaps you'll enjoy this one. I did not.

    Discussion questions are included.

    Thank you to Bonnie at Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and Bethany House Publishers for my copy.
