Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her
Mennonite hometown, Kingdom, Kansas, with plans never to return.
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.
