Product Description

From Library Journal

Katie Lapp has known no other world than that of the Amish who raised her. Since her refusal to accept their ways fully has resulted in her being shunned (see The Shunning, Bethany, 1997), Katie takes refuge with a Mennonite family and tracks down her biological mother. However, Katie soon realizes that Laura Mayfield-Bennett is not only mortally ill but also married to a man more concerned with her money than with her. This undemanding book gives a good portrait of an Amish girl facing the outside world for the first time but is too dependent on coincidence to be fully believable. Still, a pleasant enough story that will be welcome in larger collections.

From the Back Cover

Alone in a world of compassion and greed, mercy and betrayal...

Katie Lapp has been torn from her close-knit Plain family and community in the painful ordeal known as the shunning. But as she strikes out into the strange and sometimes dangerous "English" world, she is unaware that the man she loves is planning to return to his Amish family--and to her.

From New York Times bestselling author Beverly Lewis, "...a master of eliciting empathy for characters caught in troubles of their own making."--Library Journal --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I finished the first book, The Shunning, only to feel completely lost and frustrated...surely this was a cruel hoax....it could not be ending, there must be more. I was not disappointed! There WAS more, indeed, in this second book! Wow! For the first time in all my reading days, I found it completely impossible to resist frantically searching through the pages to be sure this or that did, in fact, happen...things just could NOT go on as they were...I could not wait to find out by reading a page at a time...I had to frantically search the pages until I knew... The continuation of the story of Katherine, Laura, her Amish family, Mary, and the wise old woman...and the bishop...and her true love...this story took so many strange turns and curves, it was impossible to second guess the author. Suspense ruled! Bev Lewis never let me wander from the story line....how could I? I practically read the book straight through! It was just glued to my hands and would NOT go down until I was done. Book #3? PLEEEEEZE!!

Format: Paperback
Mrs. Lewis story about "Amish" raised Katherine brought to mind the reality of confusion that many people, Amish, Baptist or whatever, may have with believing in every doctrine, rule or way they have been taught from birth. Through this wonderful book, she so brilliantly conveys the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the freedom that comes with that relationship. I, too, am sitting on the edge of my chair, waiting for the continued story of Katherine's new life, as mistress of Mayfield; young, vulnerable woman needing acceptance and love and daughter of two mothers, one a brief memory and the other feeling forlorn and rejected. Please, please, publish #3 real soon!

It was good to visit all the old friends again - young Katie (now Katherine) just discovering her wings; dear broken-hearted mam, Rebecca; the old Wise Woman; dear cousin Lydia Miller; loyal friend, Mary; and many more. Once again, Beverly Lewis has outdone herself! I expected the book to be great - it's fantastic! She masterfully portrayed each setting in such a way as to allow me to live the story vicariously through many different characters. She also inserted an element of breathless anxiety when the story took an unexpected turn. When I finished the book, I was pleased to think that there HAS TO BE a book #3 - how can we wait for it?

When I bought these books as a set from Guideposts, it seems like I took a chance. But then I have wanted to read about the Amish. And I'm glad that I did. When I finished The Shunning, I could not wait to start reading The Confession, and then The Reckoning. The Confession taught me to find where your heart is at, even if it means that you have to make sacrifices. In all, it took me four days to read all three books. If there are more fictional books about the Amish, I like to read them. However, I would like to close by saying hello to the Amish and God Bless Them. They are wonderful people.

Having read _The Shunning_, I was anxiously waiting for the release of _The Confession_, so I could finally learn the fate of Katie on her quest to find her mother. This is a fabulous story and Lewis should be commended for not only her gripping writing style but also her accuracy with regards to the Amish and Mennonite religions.
Just as _The Shunning_ did, _The Confession_ left me wanting more. I want to find out what happens to Katie -- does she find Dan? Does she go back to the Amish? Does she instead find a home with the Mennonites? Or does she stay in the modern world?

I read this book several years ago, but it still comes to mind quite often. I read the entire Lancaster Series by B. Lewis, and was amazed by the insites into the world of the Amish. This book takes the main character away from the Plain folk and brings them to the world of her worldly, wealthy birth mother. It shows the decisions that she must make to determine where God is leading her. I recommended this series to my sister-in-law. And she indicated that though this was not the type of book she reads, she actually loved the series.

Format: Paperback
This is the sequel to "The Shunning" and it picks up slightly before the other one finishes, but from a different view point.
This is Katie's/Katherine's story of how she finds her birth mother and the obstacles she faces. I thought that there could be a little bit more conflict and maybe a little less preaching in this book.
I liked this book, but I don't think it had the emotional impact of the first one. But it was a fast read and an enjoyable one.
I would recommend this book.

I only got this book because I was waiting for a book to be released from another series I am reading, but not I am so glad that I found it! I couldn't put this book down. After I read book #1 The Shunning I went right back to the library and picked up this one. I couldn't wait to read more about Katie. I have recently been reading a series based on the Amish by Lurlene McDaniel. I think this series will definately equal or top the series by Lurlene McDaniel. Just release book #3 soon. Please!!
