Product description

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 that eighteen-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 into the world of those who live 'plain', Ellie must find a way to reach Katie on her terms. 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 comes back into her life.

Review quote

'Jodi Picoult's novels often focus on lives turned upside down by some terrible event, and it's her way with the small emotional detail that makes them so rewarding.' Marie Claire 'Another fascinating and engrossing read by Picoult' Closer 'Picoult fans will not be disappointed. There is the usual compulsive writing, the insight into family and colourful characterisation ... a pleasure to pick up, and impossible to put down' Daily Express 'This is another cracker from Picoult' Family Circle 'Jodi Picoult is not one to shy away from fictional controversy; in fact, the more tangled and messy a moral dilemma appears, the better she likes it. Daily Mail Picoult has been incredibly successful in dissecting the pain that family members go through when faced with sensitive and emotive issues Daily Express
