I remember reading the book The Shunning quite a while ago. Beverly Lewis has an amazing way of giving the "English" reader a glimpse into Amish life. I was quite pleased to find out it had been made in to a movie.
Beverly Lewis is a prolific writer of more than 80 books. She began writing as a young girl. Having lived in Pennsylvania Dutch country, she gives her readers an insiders view in to Amish life.
It has been quite a few years since I've read The Shunning but I found it an excellent book. Michael Landon, Jr. has once again done a great job of taking a loved book and turning it into a loved movie. I sat one afternoon when my family was gone on a day trip and enjoyed the DVD. I cried - oh my did I cry - it was powerfully done. I highly recommend watching it - with a box of tissues.
