Product Description

In the quiet Amish community of Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania, time has stood still while cherished traditions and heartfelt beliefs have flourished. But a secret lies buried that could shatter the tranquility its inhabitants have grown to love.When Katie Lapp stumbles upon a satin infant gown in the dusty leather trunk of her parents' attic, she knows it holds a story she must discover. Why else would her Amish mother, a plain and simple woman who embraces the Old Order laws, hide the beautiful baby dress in the attic?On the eve of Katie's wedding to widower Bishop John, startling news staggers out of her anguished parents, and nothing prepares Katie for the devastation their confession brings. Feeling betrayed, Katie watches as the only life she has ever known begins to unravel, leaving in its wake a furrow of pain and a future of hope.

    I watched the movie and wanted to know if the movie followed the book. I liked the series better than the movie.You have to read all three books to find out what happens.

    Gave "The Shunning" to my daughter on her 16th birthday 3 weeks ago, and she has LOVED this book! She cannot wait to get the next two in the series. She also wants to see the movie that is based on the book. Highly recommended!

    I bought this book because I had seen the movie. A fabulous story - much better than the movie (but that's just me - I love my books!). I could not put the book down - I just had to find out what was around the corner for Katie Lapp!

    This is the first book by Beverly Lewis I read. I enjoyed this story and was able to read all of the series quickly since I was a late comer to the series. It started me reading all of her series. I enjoyed the series and found it well written and highlights the best in a people. It is definately written by someone who has a great love for these people. I have to say that it is a simpler lifestyle that resonates with me most and I acknowledge that I prefer a slower pace. I will keep going back to this simpler life in books.

    Beverly Lewis weaves together a captivating story about freedom of choice, religion, and redemption in the Amish world. It begins with the story of Katie Lapp, a young Amish woman who discovers a hidden secret from her past. As the secret unveils itself, Katie's small Amish world is turned upside down. I was surprised at how much I loved this book. It is the first Amish fiction I have ever read, and now I'm craving more from Beverly Lewis. The story was captivating and moving, and I anticipate reading the next two books in the series.
