Product Details

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A dramatic sequel Oct. 28 2002
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow-moving sequel with a sad ending Dec 21 2001
While it's great that Katie/Katherine was finally reuinited with her mother in the end, why did there have to be quite so many obstacles? I will continue to read all 3 books in the series, because an important part of the story is lost without reading the whole set, but I'd like to see a little less conflict!

4.0 out of 5 stars great book , but.... April 27 2001
By A Customer
I know that there is another book after this, but I just wasnt happy with the ending of this book. The story is good and I have enjoyed all other books Ive read by this author. I ordered THE RECKONING so Im hoping when I finish it, i will like the series of these 3 books. The first one was good alone, but I think the second one needed a better finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decisions Must Be Made Nov. 3 2000
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspensful, romantic, Delightful! March 18 2000
By A Customer
I don't know when I've enjoyed a book as much as this one! It was thoroughly enjoyable, clean, inspiring, with a great plot. It's a must read! And by the way, I haven't read the first in the series, so one could easily pick up with this one- it makes perfect sense. I can't wait to read the next!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Shunning March 2 2000
I listened to this book while driving. I did not want to stop driving till I finished the book..Wasted a lot of gas. I do hope and pray that the sequels will be put on audio for us that are in the car so much. Loved it. Can't wait for "The confession and The Reckoning"...Any time frame on that?

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book. A cliffhanger of sorts. Nov. 20 1999
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.
