Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling 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 18-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.

Good story, fix the reading.

Why are there two readers alternately reading the same parts??? They sound nothing alike and it only serves to confuse the listener throughout the entire book. This absolutely needs to be re-recorded. The story itself was good, not great. There's a paranormal aspect that seemed to go nowhere and the ending was a disappointment but it was worth listening to.

Great book awful narrations

I first read this as a book and enjoyed it as much as I enjoy all of Jodi Picoult's books. But the narration and interpretation of this is really poor. It is painful and almost embarrassing how the Amish characters are read as though they are slow and stupid and some characters voices/narration are downright annoying. Would not listen to again.

Great story

I enjoyed the story but struggled with the tone of the voices. Don’t mean it as an insult, just personal preference.
