Okay, I am going to rate this book harshly and I by all means have the right to rate it any way I want. You should not take my personal rating as truth, or make a final decission on it. Read the book for yourself, it may read diffrently for you then it has for me. With that said, if you look at my reading history you will see that I love Amish tales, this was the second Amish book I have read not written from a Christan Author. I think that makes a huge diffrence. I have come to enjoy the journey of picoults work but I didn't care too much for this book. It has the same up and down in emotions of topic's of our court system, Amish life , love, and murder. I did not like the way the Amish people in book were made to look but that may because I have a diffrent view of them as a people, religion and culture from all the other books I have read. Does it end the way I thought it would, absolutly not but that is why I read Picoult books, they are a journey and in that aspect the book was fine.

Kristina I enjoyed your review on this one. It certainly has me interested about the book. Much like you I seem to have a roller coaster like/dislike of Picoult books. The last one of hers I read was such a turn off for me it has been quite some time since I have touched one. Perhaps I should venture into the waters again though...

Tasha enderby Have you read House Rules, I would suggest that one if she's turned you off by some of her books. She's hard to read, you love to hate her views.

Kristina House Rules is actually the last book of hers that I read and it turned me off so much I haven't had the will to venture into her stories again since. It felt as though she really did a disservice to the autism community in her fabricated story of autism spectrum disorders. She certainly could have tried a little more positive perspective at the very least in my opinion.
