The Shunning Movie Review and Giveaway!!


I was really looking forward to watching this movie, so excited that we watched it the same night it arrived!!

My family is hooked now!


We watched it with the girls and dad.  The movie is based on the books by Beverly Lewis, and I haven't read any of them.  I just can't find the time to actually read through a whole book right now, so it was great to be able to watch the movie. 

It was funny, because while watching the movie, my 13 year old and I were talking about what we thought would happen next, the storyline was great and we were way off with our thoughts.  It was really cool to see how much my kids got involved in the movie too (even hubby stayed awake to watch it!!)

We CANNOT wait to see the next one!!  This was definitely a 2+ thumbs up from our family!!!

If you would like to learn some more about the movie, feel free to check out the links below:

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.

BEVERLY LEWIS - Author of "The Shunning"

Beverly Lewis, born in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country, is The New York Times bestselling author of more than eighty books. Her stories have been published in eleven languages worldwide.

Lewis has been interviewed by both national and international media, including Time magazine, the Associated Press, and the BBC. Lewis lives with her husband, David, in Colorado.
