Plain Truth by Jodi PicoultAdult Fiction
I really like this author's writing style. It's my first book by her but won't be my last.
Ellie is a high-powered Philadelphia attorney who is having some personal issues and a professional crisis. She heads to her aunt's home in Pennsylvania Amish country for some R&R. Her vacation is interrupted when her aunt begs her to take on a new case--her niece and Ellie's cousin by marriage. The cousin is an unmarried Amish teen accused of giving birth secretly and then killing the baby.
Their clash is apparent in every way-philosophical, cultural, religious, their views of women. Their situations force them to face some hard truths about themselves.
You just don't know what going to happen or how it's going to end. How can there be a happy ending to such a sad story and why did I even expect one? This one is a mystery that keeps you gripped and, even though you know what's going on, you don't really know what's going to happen. I hope all her other books are this good!
