Beverly Lewis' The Confession picks a short time after the ending of The Shunning. For those of us who saw The Shunning and were left at the end wanting to know where Katie went and what happened, this is the next section of the story. Without ruining it for you, basically this part is about Katie locating her biological mother and the strange events that pop up along the way. This includes someone falsely proclaiming herself to be Katie for the purpose of manipulating circumstances in someone else's favor for financial gain. Of course this all gets worked out in the end, but the "end" (like the first movie) leaves you in the air again. There are yet again, more things to resolve. Hence, I believe there is another movie on the way.

I must say here that most popular movies that have a sequel share this in common; the second movie is just not as fresh as the first. I found that true here. The actors came back (tired maybe?) and made this second movie - but it is lacking something. It felt like a second movie. Still, I enjoyed it.

There were some favorite scenes that were very well acted by each of the actors. The scene with Katie crying made me cry - you could feel her pain. Daniel showing up as Yacob Glik was really good. I saw an opportunity for some comic scenes, but these were very underplayed and it felt like an opportunity was lost there. I never really understood about the "letter" that Laura had that proved to her who Katie really was - I wanted to know how that letter did that....I didn't connect it. I think "Yacob" left it? Was that scene removed?

Bottom line, if you saw The Shunning you will want to see The Confession. It is a continuation of the story, but not the conclusion. It is good family entertainment with nothing inappropriate going on. I enjoyed it , watched it 3 times then sent it to my mom to watch. She is enjoying it now with her book club friends who read the Shunning. I believe you will enjoy it too!

second in The Shunning trilogy. Good movie. Hard to think we have to wait until July for the final in this story. Shunned Amish girl Katie goes to New York to find her sick birth mom. Katie finds her birth mom and is shocked to find an Amish girl posing as Katie. Before mom passes the true Katie is discovered. Socialite mom passes and Katie is left with a huge estate and foundation to take care of. Movie is a warm movie to watch. Can't wait for the Reckoning.

The Confession follows the first book/DVD, The Shunning, and the plot thickens.
The heroine is able to get enough information to find her birth mother.
She has been shunned by the community; therefore it is easier for her
to leave her home. By the end of this segment, the viewer is wondering
how it all will be resolved!!
I had to order the third book to find out!! The DVD for the third part hasn't been released yet. Each part is well written and interesting.
