Loved this book! The writing of the Amish way of life meeting up with the "English" justice system is superbly written. The way the story intertwines is great and I loved the way it ended. Took my breath away! ( )

Amish young lady accused of murdering her baby. It is a good look into the beliefs and lifestyle of the Amish. The young lady is adamant about not killing her newborn. Good read.

I'm not sure what to rate this book. I figured out the big surprise pretty early on but was hoping I was wrong. I thought maybe I was and was pretty angry when it was confirmed at the very end. It was a well crafted story and I appreciate that she didn't take the easy way out with the characters. It was much more emotionally griping than I had anticipated. ( )

When an Amish teenager has a baby in a barn, and that baby is found dead later, she denies having had a baby. But when she needs to go to the hospital because she’s bleeding heavily, there is no doubt. But Katie continues to deny having had a baby. Ellie is a distant relation and a defense lawyer. She has come to visit (her cousin? Aunt?) Leda who is also related, and Ellie is roped into taking Katie’s case.

This was good, a bit slow through most of it, but even so, I liked the story enough that I was close to rating it 4 stars. The very end made up my mind to give it that extra boost up to 4. Because Ellie ended up living on Katie’s farm with her and her family (part of the bail conditions), it was interesting to learn a lot more about Amish culture. ( )

You are asking from the beginning...did she or didn't she? What really happened? A great read, a great twist, and a main character that finds herself finding who she really is, not who she thought she was. ( )

For my dad, Myron Picoult, who taught me to be an original.

There are not many men in the world who can sneeze like a duck, spy hales of bay, make very bad puns...and cherish their daughters so completely.

I love you.
