Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult.

Author: Jodi Picoult
ISBN: 0-340-83547-8
Genre: Fiction

Publisher: HODDER

" 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 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 into the world of those who live 'plain', Ellie must find a way to reach Katie on her terms. 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 comes back into her life."

I can't really do a review of this book, although I got 3/4's through it, as I haven't finished it. I was really looking forward to reading it, but I've found the book lifeless. I just haven't enjoyed it. It was one I was looking forward to reading as a lot of people like Jodi's books. But I can't be bothered to finish it. I'm not sure I ever will?

My Verdict; From what I read, it's boring. :(
