While I don't have much time for reading these days, and rarely choose to use that reading time on fiction, I've been a fan of Beverly Lewis's novels, set in Amish country, for years. So when I was given the opportunity to review a Hallmark DVD based on Beverly Lewis's book The Shunning, I jumped at the chance.
In a nutshell, this is a story of a young Amish woman searching to discover who she really is, complicated by the fact that she learns that she was adopted from a "fancy" (not Amish) woman, as a baby.
You can learn more about the movie here. And view the trailer here.
While I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, perhaps my biggest complaint was that it "left me hanging" it does not end at "the end of the story" but then I realized that this movie is based on a book that is the first in the series "The Heritage of Lancaster County". So now I've requested book 2 in the trilogy from my library, and am anxious to find out "what happens next". If you're a fan of Beverly Lewis's books, or the Amish genre of fiction in general, I'd recommend this as a great movie (and, I assume, book).
And now the fun part, the marketing company that sent me this movie to review has another copy of it to give to one of my readers.
