The Shunning Review and Giveaway



Beverly Lewis' The Shunning - 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 film is based on the celebrated first novel of the best-selling "The Heritage of Lancaster County" book series from author Beverly Lewis. Stars Danielle Panabaker & Sherry Stringfield.





I've actually read most of this book, but I didn't finish it.

I guess I just got too busy, or I needed to read a review book or something.

Anyhow, as one who has read the book first, I found the movie to be lacking a little.

I feel like the movie did not go into enough detail, but I still really liked it. I definitely want to see the next movie in the series.

I think I am gonna have to go get the book so that I don't have to wait and see what happens. lol

I've only read one BL series: Annie's People. I really enjoyed it. This movie looks very interesting.

I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
