grandma's movie review - The Confession - I'm Giving On Away!

If you are a fan of Beverly Lewis, then you are sure to be familiar with her series, "The Heritage of Lancaster County". Almost two years ago I reviewed, "The Shunning" when it was released on DVD, so today I'm happy to review the second story in this trilogy, "the Confession" - and announce a give-away as well!  First, the review . . . 

In this story, Katie Lapp, who was adopted as a baby and raised by Amish parents, goes in search of her birth-mother - an Englisher. When she finally finds her birth-mother, she discovers there is an impostor posing as her. Katie takes a job as a maid - her birth-mother is wealthy, but dying - and tries to figure out what she should do.

Again, the story is predictable  but it is a good story and well told. The actors do a good job and are believable in their roles. If you watch this with your grandchildren, take time to talk with them about telling the truth and what to do when you find out someone is not telling the truth. 

the Confession releases to DVD on June 11, 2013 and not only did Sony Pictures send me one to review, but they sent an additional one for me to give away! I will have a drawing for it on June 11th (USA only) If you are 18+ you can enter this contest by commenting below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry each time you "share" (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw a name from among people who would like to win the Confession and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
