Thank you to Edify Media Inc. for offering me a copy of this movie in exchange for my honest review!
The Confession is the second book-to-movie adaptation in Beverly Lewis' The Heritage of Lancaster Country trilogy. This fiction trilogy was my first introduction to, not only Beverly Lewis, but Amish fiction as well and it is still one of my favorite novels! I was more than happy to review the first movie, The Shunning, when it was released and jumped at the chance to review The Confession as well!
It's been a while since I've read The Confession, so the details of the story were pretty vague; which was nice because I was able to watch the movie without comparing it to the book. I absolutely loved The Confession (I think, more than the first movie)! Within five minutes the story had drawn me in (and almost made me late to work at the boys' school). LOVE. I cannot wait for the final movie in this series! This is also a completely safe movie to watch with your family and that's the part I love the most.
If you haven't yet watched The Shunning or The Confession, this is definitely a series you want to add to your collection!
"Based on the second novel in the acclaimed "The Heritage of Lancaster County" series by Beverly Lewis' The Confession continues the story of Katie Lapp (played by Katie Leclerc), a young Amish woman on a life-changing journey to find her English—or modern American—birth mother, the terminally ill Laura Mayfield-Bennett (Sherry Stringfield). Katie's mission is thwarted, though, by Dylan (Adrian Paul), Laura's husband, whose elaborate, fraudulent attempt to inherit Laura's wealth conceals Katie's true identity. Despite Dylan's deception, Katie's quiet faithfulness speaks volumes to Laura, who discerns that Katie is much more than hired help."
