It's an okay murder mystery - light fluff. I have not read the book, so this is the sole impression I have of the story. I took a star off because of inaccuracy, and I'd be curious whether the book has the same problem. In so many books dealing with the Amish, the author makes the same glaring error, and it's really very disrespectful to the Amish. If a person, unmarried, leaves at 18 - they would NEVER be shunned by the community. Shunning only happens if someone has already been baptized - vowed themselves to the Amish way of life formally - and they aren't baptized until around the time of marriage (usually within a week or two before). She would have been unbaptized, and thus not to be shunned. I did like the costumes and the Amish interiors - these are often badly done in other films. I have been inside many an Amish home (Old Order) and this was very accurate, if a little romanticized. The story is a bit predictable - I had it figured out about 15 minutes in, literally. But then, I'm a writer, so I often tend to do that! It's a rare mystery movie that has me guessing to the end. Some nice performances - Neve Campbell always got on my nerves, she's so absolutely devoid of warmth of any kind. But that quality worked for this role.
