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.

The Dramatic Sequel to The Shunning
Katie Lapp is torn from her close-knit Plain community in the painful ordeal called the shunning. But as she strikes out alone 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. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

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?
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.
