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

Picoult's appreciation of teen angst is exquisitely unwrapped ... and on this form she is going to leave her readers impatient for more. Scotsman A suspenseful, richly layered drama ... never loses its grip. The research is convincing, the plotting taught, the scenes wonderfully vivid ... [An] absorbing, multidimensional portrait of an Amish clan People Impossible to put down Observer This is Picoult's greatest strength; her ability to inhabit other people's feelings, relishing the bits that are complex and contradictory ... She is a master of her craft. Sunday Telegraph [H]er vivid characters have a depth and tenacity rarely found in blockbusters. Strong narrative control, a lack of sentimentality and robust but undogmatic research mark her out - as does her proven ability Independent on Sunday
