Book Description:

All her life she longed for the forbidden things, but will her dreams come at a price too dear to pay?

Why would Katie Lapp’s mother, a plain and simple Amishwoman who embraces the Old Ways, hide a beautiful satin baby dress in the attic? The staggering answer comes to light on the eve of Katie’s wedding to widower Bishop John, throwing her life–present and future–into confusion.

Beverly Lewis’ The Shunning Movie Coming Soon on DVD!

Bonus section includes a note from the author and photographs from the set of the motion picture!

My Thoughts:

I loved this book with the movie tie-in. I had read the series a few years ago thought they were great, so I had to get this one. The stills were stunning (I have yet to see the movie).

The week before her wedding, Katie Lapp finds out that the people who raised her and whom she called parents are not her biological mother and father.

The day of her wedding,she runs of right before saying her vows to her husband-to-be, the bishop no-less. The results are in her getting shunned. She leaves the only home she has ever known to go and find her English birth mother, who is dying of a terminal illness.

This is a must have if you love Beverly Lewis’ books. I have added it to my bookshelf and am glad I have done so.

Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. These are my words and thoughts 100%
