Jodi Picoult works her magical wand again as she explores the mores of the Amish. She must have done a lot of research to have such insight into the Amish culture. There are many twists and turns...I thought I was a seasoned mystery reader who could smell a villain a mile away, but I didn't get it right this time. Jodi Picoult is a masterful writer and researcher.*****

JODI PICOULT IS SUCH A TALENTED AUTHOR AND YOU CAN CERTAINLY TELL. THIS NOVEL TAKES PLACE IN AMISH COUNTRY AND THERE ARE THINGS SHE WRITES ABOUT THAT READERS WOULDNT KNOW UNLESS THEY RESEARCHED IT OR LIVE AROUND IT. THIS STORY HAS A VERY SUPRISING TWIST IN THE END, BUT IT IS CERTAINLY A MUST READ.

If you are a christian this is not the book for you. It has alot of foul language. This is not a book for children either.

After reading Nineteen Minutes and My Sister's Keeper I came here to purchase ALL her books. My next read was Plain Truth and as the others I could not put the book down until I finished. Picoult has a way of drawing you the reader into the story and you're hooked until that twist that she so cleverly plants. (Darn, she got me again!) Living in Amish Country I was amazed at the accuracy of her story. It shows another of her qualities of writing.
Onto the next . . .

Just like every other book written by Jodi Picoult this book is wonderful. She depicts a way of life most people don't know much about very well. Her characters are great. And like most of her books you'll never guess who did it.
