A Young Amish Woman Searches for Her Birth Mom
Beverly Lewis' The Confession (Saturday - Hallmark Channel, 9pm) - Katie
Lapp (Katie Leclerc) is an innocent young Amish woman who has ventured
out of her small Lancaster community for the first time after a painful
incident led to her “shunning” from the very township that raised her.
As she takes on the unfamiliar outside world, she is desperate to track
down her birth mother, a wealthy and generous woman named Laura
Mayfield-Bennett (Sherry Stringfield) who is sadly dying of cancer. With
only a few months to live, Laura and her husband Dylan (Adrian Paul)
prepare Laura’s estate and will.
When Dylan, a greedy gambling addict,
finds out he will inherit close to nothing from his wife, he hires an
out-of-work actress, Alyson (Julia Whelan), to feign as Laura’s
long-lost Amish daughter—hoping Laura will take the bait and leave her
entire estate to her only child.
