Plain Truth
Plain Truth | Jodi Picoult
From the bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper comes the riveting story of a murder that shatters the picturesque calm of Amish country -- and tests the heart and soul of the lawyer defending the woman at the center of the storm.The discovery of a dead infant in an Amish barn shakes Lancaster County to its core. But the police investigation leads to a more shocking disclosure: circumstantial evidence suggests that eighteen-year-old Katie Fisher, an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn's mother, took the child's life. When Ellie Hathaway, a disillusioned big-city attorney, comes to Paradise, Pennsylvania, to defend Katie, two cultures collide -- and for the first time in her high-profile career, Ellie faces a system of justice very different from her own. Delving deep inside the world of those who live "plain," Ellie must find a way to reach Katie on her terms. And as she unravels a tangled murder case, Ellie also looks deep within -- to confront her own fears and desires when a man from her past reenters her life.

Great read. I'm always interested in the Amish Community, and what they believe and how they live in today's world.

The discovery of a dead infant in an Amish barn shakes the community to it's core. The investigation suggests that a eighteen year old girl is responsible. Which she denies.
Great read you will love it

A beautiful story hails from the Amish village intermingling their passive subtle lifestyles and traditions.
A child was born and killed; the mother unaware of it.
As the story unfolds so does the moral upbringings and culture differences that gets questioned.

I don't know why I even bother to make up reading plans for the month, when I'm so easily distracted. 🙄 Latest distraction. I'm on chapter nineteen, and enjoying it very much. Jodi Picoults are entertaining, fast reads for me.

#maybookflowers Day 9: Truth

CouronneDhiver Recommend? 3y
GinEyre22 @CouronneDhiver , Picoult isn't my jam - I read it because I grew up in Lancaster, PA - but you should try it. The Lifetime movie with Mariska Hargitay is bananas! 3y
Chasing_Pages I grew up in Lancaster, PA too! 😉 3y
GinEyre22 @Chasing-Pages , small world! 😊 3y

Day 2 #riotgrams - getting in under the wire! #whereiread is pretty much anywhere! My favorite thing about my house is I have so many reading spots; front porch, back deck, big comfy bed with tons of light and I'm always reading (or listening to an audiobook) on road trips! #allthebooks

Can't wait to get out of work so I can go shopping! Savers already sells their used books at amazing prices (typically from .99 cents - 1.99) and today and tomorrow they are 50% off. My plan is to give myself a spending limit. Maybe I'll take cash out and leave the cards at home. Do you ever have to give yourself a spending limit monthly when it comes to books?

Parts of it were so incredibly frustrating. Not in the way that's annoying, but in a way that makes you want to keep reading to see how the conflicts are resolved. Also, GREAT unexpected (unless you're good at predicting them like myself) ending. Highly recommend.

Love a good murder mystery (Salem falls is still my favorite by JP though). However Jodi Picoult always reminds me of a PG-13 rated version of Gillian Flynn. I dig it.

sarah_gabrielle Love her books! 3y
