A young Amish woman finds out she is adopted.
24 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought that though it was not 100% true to the book, it did follow it pretty well for the time crunch. I did notice some things that were not true to the Amish, but it is also a hard thing to tell because many of the orders differ in their rules. I really enjoyed seeing Danielle Panabaker as Katie, I thought she expressed the emotions of the situation strongly! The entire cast was strong, with the exception of David Topp, who was okay, but seemed young for the roll, and was nothing like the young man described. Over all I felt like it was a nice transition to the screen and very worth watching if you are a Beverly Lewis fan.
