Edify Media: Beverly Lewis’ The Confession on DVD (review)

on June 7, 2013

About the DVD:

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.  

BEVERLY LEWIS’ THE CONFESSION has a running time of approximately 88 minutes and is not rated. The film will air on the Hallmark Channel on May 11, 2013.


My Opinion:

If you’ve seen The Shunning then you have to see The Confession – I fell in love with the books years ago – and seeing it come to life on my TV makes it even more vibrant with the characters coming to life.  We pick up where we left off after Katie Lapp leaves her adoptive Amish parents in search of her birth mom who is dying.  A few under handed twists occur but finally, and right on time, Katie is re-united with her birth mother.  A tear-jerker for sure this one is best watched with a box of tissues by your side – the most endearing moment was when Katie is sitting next to her birth mom singing a song to her.  I am so happy to add this to my Amish movie collection so I can enjoy it again and again – I need to re-read the series.  The DVD releases June 11th so be sure to grab your copy!
