Katie 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, and to turn your back on it is to lose everything - your church, your home, your family.
So when, in the middle of the night, the baby comes, Katie does the only thing she knows how to do in times of stress: she prays.
She falls asleep, exhausted, and when she wakes, it seems her prayer is answered. The baby is gone. Her father need never know.
But faith alone cannot help when her child's body is found.

How could I sympathize with a (girl) who might/might not have killed her baby? But sympathize I did, over and over. Picoult made me understand how the...
An interesting story with a lot of twists. Heartbreaking moments when the mother confesses and when she's subjected to cross-examination by the prosecution. I liked it but I'm not sure I liked the deliberate manipulation.
