I'm a huge fan of family friend movies and LOVE the Hallmark Channel. Now I've got the perfect review and giveaway just for you. Beverly Lewis is one of the best selling authors on Amish fiction and has been blessed enough to not only have one of her famous series made into a movie with The Shunning but now the second in the The Heritage of Lancaster County Series, The Confession is now ready to be released on DVD on June 11th.

In this latest movie, we once again follow Katie Lapp (Katie Leclerc, TV's "Switched at Birth), who we left off in The Shunning learning that she was adopted by an Amish couple and was born English. Her birth mother was searching for Katie but her Amish parents kept both of them apart. Only when learning that her birth mother was dying of cancer, did Katie's Amish mother tell her the truth. Now we find ourselves at the beginning of that journey for Katie to find her mother, Laura Mayfield-Bennett (Sherry Stringfield, TV's "ER"), a socialite now living in New York. She learns from her doctors that she has only weeks left to live before she succumbs to cancer and her only wish in life is to find Katie.

Her husband, Dylan Bennett, is struggling with addiction to alcohol and gambling and she feels if he doesn't get help there won't be anything left of her estate and the foundation she's worked so hard to build. When her husband learns he is being cut out of the will, he is desperate to satisfy his outstanding gambling debt with some ruthless loan sharks. He learns that Katie is searching for her birth mother, Laura Bennett and soon comes up with a plan to appease his gambling debt and get back in his wife's good graces again but hiring a stand in to act as the long lost daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Confession is a great, family-friendly movie! May 25, 2013
I got a DVD copy of "The Confession" in exchange for my honest review. When I got the DVD, and compared the pictures to those on The Shunning DVD, I saw that the actress playing Katie Lapp had changed. That caused me a moment's hesitation, but once I watched the movie, all those doubts disappeared. Katie Leclerc did an excellent job of portraying Katie Lapp in her struggles to do the right thing.

This is an awesome, family-friendly movie. If you haven't watched "The Shunning" yet, you definitely need to watch that first to get the back story. Katie is on a mission to find her birth mother. She doesn't have much more than a name and general location, and she runs into opposition, including an imposter!

Even though I've read the books that these movies are based on, I found myself caught up in the movie, wondering what would happen next, how obstacles would be overcome, and how conflicts would be resolved. The movie went by very quickly, and left me saying "What? It's over? I have to wait for the final movie now?"

The movie had a little bit of everything - humor, light romance, conflicts, suspense. I appreciate the way the main characters of Katie Lapp and Laura Mayfield-Bennett are such loveable characters, showing grace, kindness, loyalty and forgiveness to others.

There are several scenes in the movie that could lead to good family discussions on how the character's faith was shown through their actions, such as Laura Mayfield-Bennett's dealings with her husband, and how Katie Lapp consistently thinks of how her actions will impact the Amish couple who raised her.

Two thumbs up! I hope movie #3 in the series is out soon!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Confession Movie May 22, 2013
By Jenny
I really wanted to like this move,but it was a bit of a let down for me. Bev is my favorite author,I read this whole series of books in two days. I did not expect the movie to be as good as the book,movies never are,but I expected more. I just felt like there was so much detail left out. That being said,for people who have not read the books it may have been better. Also,as much as I adore Katie Leclerc,it would have been nice to have the same actress from The Shunning play the roll of Katie Lapp. Overall I am glad I watched it,but I will not be watching again. The book,however,I have read twice now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good clean movie for family May 22, 2013
As you know, I'm quite picky with movies. The Confession was a good, clean film. I watched it with my family tonight. There was no bad language or crude jokes. There were no scenes that would cause you to shield your little ones' eyes or ears.

I found it to be an entertaining movie. I wanted to encourage the "good guys", shake a couple of "bad guys" a couple of times, I just wanted to hug Laura and the real Katie Lapp. I thought the head housekeeper was sweet and adorable. We liked the movie very much. But... we didn't know that it would leave us hanging. We found that frustrating because we have to wait a long time to find out whether there will be a happily ever after or not. We are assuming that they will make The Reckoning into a movie as well. If not, well I just might have to buy the book!

It's not the most exciting movie we've seen, but we would watch it again. It will stand alone as a story, but I think you would enjoy it more if you watch or read The Shunning first.
I received this dvd in exchange for an honest review.

Storyline weak and improbable definately a big let down from the Shunning. The new Katie was by far the star but so little emotion or conflict for her new life versrs old.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed seeing Mrs. Lewis' words come to life.
It followed the book pretty well, like hearing the duetsh (dutch/german) accent being used. A must have to go along with the first movie.
