Unabridged Audiobook

16 hours 45 minutes
From the bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper comes the riveting story of a murder that shatters the picturesque calm of Amish country—and tests the heart and soul of the lawyer defending the woman at the center of the storm.

The discovery of a dead infant in an Amish barn shakes Lancaster County to its core. But the police investigation leads to a more shocking disclosure: circumstantial evidence suggests that eighteen-year-old Katie Fisher, an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn's mother, took the child's life. When Ellie Hathaway, a disillusioned big-city attorney, comes to Paradise, Pennsylvania, to defend Katie, two cultures collide—and for the first time in her high-profile career, Ellie faces a system of justice very different from her own. Delving deep inside the world of those who live 'plain,' Ellie must find a way to reach Katie on her terms. And as she unravels a tangled murder case, Ellie also looks deep within—to confront her own fears and desires when a man from her past reenters her life.

Disappointing and interminable. I like Picoult usually, but this was a big let down. The revelation at the end had been obvious from the start. The contrivance of contradictory, yet parallel narratives of the two main protagonists felt forced. The narrator did a good job, although the Amish submissive voice occasionally bled into the other character. I wanted to give up after the first few chapters. I wish I had.

Not as strong as some Jodi Picoult novels, loved the descriptions of Amish life. The narration was very good especially Katie''s voice could really see her.

A captivating story which pulls the reader into the Amish life who call themselves "plain" due to their simple peace leading life. I learned a lot about the lifestyle of the Amish and their conflicts with the "English" lifestyle, while trying to understand what is the truth and what is coverage of it..
