In anticipation of tonight’s movie I’ve added some stills from The Confession to the gallery.
For the hardy few to whom “Beverly Lewis’ The Confession” really is the much-anticipated sequel to “The Shunning,” its arrival is no doubt good news. To the rest of the world, this Hallmark Channel movie derived from the second of Lewis’ “The Heritage of Lancaster County” books is distinguished by possessing slightly more edge than the network’s standard fare, and a solid tandem in Katie Leclerc (“Switched at Birth”) and Sherry Stringfield (was “ER” really that long ago?) as its leads. It’s also enough of a stand-alone story one needn’t have thrilled to part one to join the buggy ride.
Leclerc plays Katie, who was “shunned” by the Amish community that raised her in the first film. Now out in the modern world, she seeks to reconnect with her birth mother, Laura (Stringfield), a wealthy socialite who early on is presented with a fatal cancer diagnosis. This comes as bad news to Laura’s leech of a husband, Dylan (Adrian Paul), who needs his wife’s money to finance his gambling habit. Fearing he will lose his inheritance when he hears from Katie, he seizes on a scheme to pass off a struggling actress (“Once and Again’s” Julia Whelan) as Katie, hoping to secure access to his wife’s estate before she dies.

When Hallmark Channel premiered Beverly Lewis’ The Shunning in 2011, it generated huge acclaim and sparkling ratings for its story of family ties and betrayal in the close-knit Amish community in Lancaster County. Now the World Premiere of Beverly Lewis’ The Confession, a Hallmark Channel Original Movie based on the second novel in the Heritage of Lancaster County Books series from the New York Times bestselling author Beverly Lewis, will premiere on Saturday, May 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The film stars three-time Emmy and two-time Golden Globe® nominee Sherry Stringfield (GUIDING LIGHT, ER) as Laura Mayfield-Bennett, a wealthy socialite and benefactor who is beset by terminal cancer. One of Laura’s great regrets was her having put her only child up for adoption years before.
But Laura believes her prayers have been answered when she’s contacted by a woman named Alyson (Julia Whelan, ONCE AND AGAIN) who claims to be her long-lost Amish daughter. Except that it’s a fraud perpetrated by Laura’s scheming, compulsive gambling, husband Dylan (Adrian Paul, HIGHLANDER). Dylan concocts a plan to insert himself back into the financial picture after discovering he’s going to be left nothing in Laura’s will. So he hires Alyson, a struggling waitress, to pretend that she’s the Amish daughter Laura never knew, hoping to receive the majority of Laura’s estate.
But as luck would have it, Laura’s real daughter, Katie (Katie Leclerc, SWITCHED AT BIRTH) shows up after having been shunned by her Amish community and desperately wants to meet and have a relationship with her real mom.
As the secrets pile up in Beverly Lewis’ The Confession, the family bonds are challenged. But the film teaches us that love ultimately wins out in the end.
