“Jodi Picoult is never afraid to take on hot topics” (PopSugar) and in this riveting novel, a shocking murder in the heart of Amish country shakes the community to its core and tests the heart and soul of the city lawyer defending the young woman accused.

When the body of an infant is discovered in an Amish barn, residents of Lancaster County are horrified. The investigation takes a stunning turn when the police allege that circumstantial evidence suggests that eighteen-year-old Katie Fisher—an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn’s mother—took the child’s life.

When Ellie Hathaway, a disillusioned big city attorney, arrives to defend Katie, their two cultures collide and for the first time in her high-profile career, Ellie faces a justice system very different from her own. Desperate to connect with Katie and unravel a complicated murder case, Ellie must also confront her own fears and desires when a man from her past unexpectedly reenters her life.

With “its magnificently painted backdrop and distinctive characters” (Publishers Weekly), Plain Truth is a moving and powerful novel that clearly demonstrates that “Picoult is a rare writer who delivers book after book, a winning combination of the literary and the commercial” (Entertainment Weekly).
