Publisher's Summary

In the quiet Amish community of Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania, time has stood still while cherished traditions and heartfelt beliefs have flourished. But a secret lies buried that could shatter the tranquility its inhabitants have grown to love.When Katie Lapp stumbles upon a satin infant gown in the dusty leather trunk of her parents' attic, she knows it holds a story she must discover. Why else would her Amish mother, a plain and simple woman who embraces the Old Order laws, hide the beautiful baby dress in the attic?
On the eve of Katie's wedding to widower Bishop John, startling news staggers out of her anguished parents, and nothing prepares Katie for the devastation their confession brings. Feeling betrayed, Katie watches as the only life she has ever known begins to unravel, leaving in its wake a furrow of pain and a future of hope.
The Shunning is the first book in a triology that recreates the simple life of the Amish. Its themes of hope and reconciliation show us that even when we think we are far away, God's love is always present.

Easy read pulls you in enough

to feel comfortable with reading the next in the series. Ms Lewis is a fine writer. The "Christian" aspect of it is not overwhelming.

Underwhelming

Just not for me. Story moved so slowly that I put my iPod on fast speed. The characters felt very two-dimensional to me. And the ending was very unsatisfying. I won't be reading any more of these.
