Many of my friends have been telling me about what a great author Jodi Picoult is. I read The Tenth Circle, but I wasn’t overly thrilled with it. It was better than the Lifetime movie though! Anyway, my friend told me about how she couldn’t put down Plain Truth. I decided to give it a try. My friend was right about not being able to put it down. Instead of grading my large pile of papers this past Sunday, I sat on the couch and read the entire book! Picoult includes so much detail that I felt like I was there with Ellie and Katie.
Ellie is a burnt-out attorney that has gone to the country of Pennsylvania to get away for a while. She is staying with an aunt that was once Amish. While she’s there, her aunt finds out that her Amish niece, Katie, has been charged with murdering her newborn. Ellie is now put in the place to help defend Katie and find out the truth, as well as learn the Amish way of life.
