Meanwhile, unknown to Katherine, her long-lost love, Daniel, has returned to the Amish community to find her. Can they ever be together again? Find out in The Confession.
My Thoughts: I was kind of disappointed in this book. The Shunning was a decent book but this one was way more religious than I like and was kind of boring. The writing is a too simple for my taste a wnd the story was also just a little too perfect. The way everything just fell into place at the end was kind of annoying and Katie's character development in this book was so shallow. She just seemed very two dimensional and I didn't like her nearly as much in this book. I found myself caring much more about what was going on in Hickory Hollow and how Katie's family was handling her shunning. This is the 2nd book in a trilogy and I will probably read the 3rd just to see how it all ends up. Overall, this was a pretty cheesy story that just didn't do it for me. 2 stars.
