    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 18-year-old Katie Fisher, an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn's mother, took the child's life.

    What did you love best about Plain Truth?

    I read many of this author's books and love all of them. This one is typical, except way more frustrating than her other books when it comes to addressing the issue. I cannot believe the attorney doesn't slap the defendant at many times... But maybe that's what the author was hoping for. Either way, the reader is great, the story is informative, but very frustrating and drawn out to listen to. I actually stopped this half way thru to only come back later. So maybe it does say something for this novel. I've been hooked on this author's books, cause I've been a huge fan for years, this one just didn't keep me as gripes as the last. Good book, just frustrating and a little slow. But props to the reader, I think she did as best she could considering. Still a huge fan of the author though!!!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Didn't like how slow the characters evolved and how complacent everyone was with characters who should've been put more in their place. It's like no one was knocking any sense into anybody.

    Heartwarming, eye opening, addictive


    What did you like best about this story?

    Couldn't stop listening, real eye opener into autism and how it affects those with it from their point of view.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderfully researched. Very good story, keeps you wanting more. Thought the end was a little abrupt, but overall I was completely taken by this book, couldn't stop listening. Bravo.

    Story

    On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

    Richard Delman says: "A singular voice; a horrendous story."
    "Surprising Twist"
    Overall

    I didn't see this ending coming. Good thriller.... more graphic than I'm used to, and the narrator's voice was a little annoying at times, especially when she tried to do other voices. All in all, kept my interest rather well. I'd say it's worth buying.
