    DescriptionKatie Fisher is Amish. For eighteen years, she has grown up in a community set apart from the modern world by lifestyle and belief. It is a community fiercely protective of its way of life. To turn your back on it is to lose everything - your church, your home, and your family. So in the middle of the night when the baby comes, Katie does the only thing she knows how to do in times of stress: she prays. Exhausted, she falls asleep. When she wakes, the child is gone. Her prayer has been answered. But faith alone cannot help when the baby's body is found.

    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
