Beverly Lewis' the Confession #Review #Sponsored

Katie Leclerc (TV’s “Switched at Birth”) and three-time Emmy Award® nominee Sherry Stringfield (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, TV’s “ER,” 1995-1997) star in the uplifting drama Beverly Lewis' the Confession from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and AFFIRM Films/Provident Films.

Directed by Michael Landon Jr. (Beverly Lewis’ The Shunning, Love Comes Softly), the inspiring film is a sequel to the 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. Katie Lapp (Leclerc), a young Amish woman, goes on a journey in search of her identity -- only to find herself embroiled in a mystery that must be solved before she can be reunited with the “Englisher” mother, who gave her up for adoption 20 years earlier. The film also stars Bill Oberst Jr. (The Secret Life of Bees), Cameron Deane Stewart (Pitch Perfect, High School Crush) and Julia Whelan (TV’s “Once and Again”).

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 birth-mother, Laura Mayfield-Bennett (Sherry Stringfield, TV's "ER"), 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) 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.

Based on the novel by Beverly Lewis and directed by Michael Landon Jr., the film has a screenplay by Brian Bird and Michael Landon Jr. The film was produced by David R. Kappes and executive produced by Brian Bird, Maura Dunbar and Michael Landon Jr.

My thoughts:
I actually live out in the country near Amish in Ohio.  So of course I am drawn to stories and films about them.  I have not read this book series, but now after watching this video, I want to!  I was not aware of this film prior to reviewing it. The Confession is the second book in a trilogy, by Beverly Lewis. The first book, The Shunning, has already aired as a Hallmark Channel movie and it out on DVD as well.  I had not seen the first film, but was able to follow the storyline perfectly fine.    It was an amazing film that showed Grace & Love.  I enjoyed it and loved where the storyline was heading and then the film was over.  Darn cliffhanger!  Naturally it is based off a book, so I get the cliffhanger aspect, but now I want to know what happens!

I highly recommend this film if you are looking for a great Christian movie!  It is a movie that the entire family can enjoy!
