Publisher's Summary

Popular inspirational novelist Beverly Lewis transports you to the quiet Amish community in Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania where time has stood still. In The Shunning, beautiful 22-year-old Katie Lapp longs to experience the forbidden things of the outside world, even while she is making plans to forever embrace the traditions of her people. In a few days, Katie will marry Bishop John, a widower with five young children. She should be excited, but instead she feels trapped. Her thoughts in turmoil, she heads to the attic to be alone. As she explores a dusty trunk, she discovers a satin infant gown, much too fancy for an Amish baby. From that moment, Katie is determined to learn the truth behind the garment, even if it destroys the only life she has known. Beverly Lewis creates a refreshingly clean tale of poignant secrets, shattered dreams - and new hope for the future. All the joys and troubles of the busy Amish society burst from the pages with Barbara Caruso's superb performance.

Very good read

much better than the movie and I am going to keep this one in my library. I can't wait to read the second book the onfesion, I will bet it's more detailed than the movie as well. Beverly Lewis had to have grown up with the Amish, she knows so much about them. I had great Aunt from Michigan , her and her husband were Amish, they would come to S.C.to see us about very two years when I was a child, o I love reading and watching a movie about them.
