Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult

By on

We have a lot of Amish fiction readers here at the Black Creek Village Library, which is why I chose Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult for my next book.  This was another great suspense story, keeping the reader guessing until the very end.

A young Amish girl, Katie Fisher, is accused of giving birth and murdering her own baby.  She, however, has no memory of giving birth or murdering an infant, and claims she wasn't even pregnant.  Her boyfriend, Samuel Stoltzfus, insists that they have never even had a physical relationship.  Katie's distant cousin, Ellie Hathaway, a big hotshot lawyer from Philadelphia decides to take on the case, and moves in with the Fishers while she creates her defense.

This novel follows the lives of Ellie and Katie, representing the points of view of each as they become friends, and discover the truth about what happened.  It's a wonderful story, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good legal drama, as well as those Amish fiction fans!
