Katie Lapp's identity had been shattered the moment she found the satin baby dress in the attic of her parent's home. Painfully torn from her close knit community by being shunned she sets out to find her birth mother. Excellant book!!
Katherine Mayfield (aka Katie Lapp) sets out to find her birth mother. Time is short, and there is deception in the Mayfield-Bennett household. Meanwhile, Katie's adoptive family struggles to deal with the reality of Katie's harsh Shunning and her decision to leave the colony.
This is the second book in the trilogy; the first is The Shunning; the third is The Reckoning. I found that this book in the series doesn't stand well on its own; it really helps if you have read the first book.
A little "preachy" and too coincidental in parts, but overall, the series is an entertaining story about Katherine (aka Katie) and her loves, losses, and new life.
