Excellent story. The book starts out a little slow, but after a few chapters I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this book.

This is the first book in a trilogy from Beverly Lewis based on a girl in an Amish community who may be surprised when she discovers her true identity. See the second book, The Confession, and the third, The Reckoning.

Much like the other books written by Beverly Lewis, it is interesting and intriguing finding out about Amish lifestyles. Same sad plot, but you get quickly get immersed in the reading and the characters, will continue reading the rest of the series, somewhat predictable but still worth reading.

The 1st in the Heritage of Lancaster County trilogy...

From the back of the book -

All her life she has longed for the forbidden things, but will her dreams come a t a price too dear to pay?

In the quiet Amish community of Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania, time has stood still while cherished traditions and heartfelt beliefs have flourished. But a secret lies buried that could shatter the tranquility its inhabitants have grown to love.

When Katie Lapp stumbles upon a satin infant gown in the dusty leather trunk of her parents\' attic, she knows it holds a story she must discover. Why else would her Amish mother, a plain and simple wooman who embraces the Old Order laws, hide the beautiful baby dress in the attic?

On the eve of Katie\'s wedding to widower Bishop John, startling news staggers out of her anguished parents, and nothing prepares Katie for the devastation their confession brings. Feeling betrayed, Katie watches as the only life she has ever known begins to unravel, leaving in its wake a furrow of pain... and a future of hope.
