The Shunning DVD: Based on Beverly Lewis' Book {Review & Giveaway} {CLOSED}

Are you ready for another family friendly movie giveaway? Well, here it is.

We were happy to review The Shunning, a new movie based on the first novel of the best-selling "The Heritage of Lancaster County" book series from author Beverly Lewis. I've actually never read any of Beverly Lewis' books as I don't tend to enjoy reading fiction, especially right now as I have very little time for pleasure reading.

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.

Even though I haven't read the book, I did enjoy this movie. In fact a cried like a baby through a lot of it. (I'm blaming part of that on post pregnancy hormones.) You can view the trailer here.

Here's some information about Beverly Lewis that I found interesting.

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.  A keen interest in her mother's Plain heritage has inspired Lewis to write many Amish-related novels, beginning with "The Shunning," which has sold more than one million copies.  In 2007, Lewis' "The Brethren" was honored with a Christy Award. 

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.

I did go to The Shunning website, but I'm most interested in this movie because I have read the book. I have a short list of go-to fictions authors I read and Beverly Lewis is on it.

I've seen this preview recently but can't remember where. The website really has a lot of good information about the movie! I love Beverly Lewis' books and I believe she's had another of her books made into a movie as well. Saving Sarah Cain is the other movie. I love the way Beverly gives us a snapshot of life for the Amish. I have always been interested in the Amish since I was a very small child as we lived near a group of Amish and would see them in their buggies or walking along the road from time to time. Their way of life has always fascinated me. Thanks for posting this!

I also went to the website for THE SHUNNING but I'm most interested in seeing the movie because I grew up in Lancaster CO with Amish friends and neighbors. Unfortunately, by middle school, these relationships ended as our lives changed but still love going home to a more simple way of life!
