Beverly Lewis' The Confession DVD Review
Directed by Michael Landon Jr. (Beverly Lewis’ The Shunning, Love Comes Softly), Beverly Lewis' The Confession is a sequel to Hallmark Channel’s hit movie, Beverly Lewis’ The Shunning, and is based on the second novel of "The Heritage of Lancaster County" trilogy from New York Times best-selling author Beverly Lewis. The Confession was broadcast on Hallmark May 11th and the DVD releases June 11th.
Raised by an Amish family, Katie Lapp (Katie Leclerc, TV's "Switched at Birth") always felt the call of another life. Now, her quest to find her "Englisher" birth-mother, Laura Mayfield-Bennett (Sherry Stringfield, TV's "ER"), who gave her up for adoption 20 years earlier, has drawn her into world of the "Englishers". Along the way, two very different men try to help her overcome a devious scheme to steal her rightful inheritance. Business-minded but kind-hearted Justin Wirth (Michael Rupnow) reaches out to discover Katie's hidden secrets, while her childhood companion Daniel Fisher (Cameron Deane Stewart, Pitch Perfect and High School Crush) sacrifices his own happiness for her future. Katie's heart is divided between two worlds as love reveals the truth in the moving saga based on the hit novel from New York Times bestselling author Beverly Lewis. The film also stars Bill Oberst Jr. (The Secret Life of Bees) and Julia Whelan (TV’s “Once and Again”).
I love Beverly Lewis' Amish Romances and other books! I love reading them. I didn't realize that these books were made into movies. I received The Confession to review for free and enjoyed the movie very much. It had some great twists and turns that I wasn't counting on as I hadn't read the book yet. The acting was good and not too sappy. The characters were relatable and I connected with them quickly. This left a good hanger at the end and I will be anticipating the third movie and hoping to see the first too...because I missed it.
