I've been reading a lot of Amish fiction and Beverly Lewis books. So when I received a review copy of "The Confession," I couldn't wait to watch it. It did not disappoint. The story seemed, to me, to have a lot of characters, which kept it interesting. I quickly lost track of who was deceiving whom, and I loved the way the truth came to light. The surprises didn't stop until the very end, and I had to ask my husband, "Wait ... What just happened?" :) So watch closely. "The Confession" is a family-friendly, feel-good movie.
"The Confession" aired on the Hallmark Channel on May 11 and will be available on DVD on June 11.
