The giveaway associated with this review is now closed.


Back when I did a review of The Grace Card, I mentioned how much I enjoyed the previews that were shown with that movie. One of those was The Shunning. So, when I got the chance to review it, I jumped at the chance. 


The Shunning, by Beverly Lewis, is a wonderful glimpse into the lives of the Amish. The tight-knit community is protective of their neighbors. When a big-city woman comes poking around, they are reluctant to reveal the home of the lady she is looking for. One older lady in the order helps her make the connection and so begins the story.


More about the movie:
Before she succumbs to cancer, the dying wish of Laura Mayfield-Bennett is to be reunited with the daughter she never knew. Unfortunately, that daughter, Katie Lapp, is a member of the Amish order. Katie is about to be married, but uneasy about the path ahead.  Now she discovers the secret her parents have kept from her: she's adopted. 
The movie is based on the first novel in "The Heritage of Lancaster County" the series by Beverly Lewis.


I really enjoyed this movie. The drama kept you tuned in to see what happens next. Katie Lapp is already struggling with the rules that define her community. The return of her birth mother after 20 years really adds to that conflict.
