MY REVIEW
  If you love books by Beverly Lewis you will love this movie made from her book The Shunning. This DVD is excellent and a must watch. The characters are very authentic and brilliant. You just feel like it is real, the characters and places feel very genuine.
     I was pulled into the story and was enthralled with it. The story is very heart-warming while being heart-breaking at the same time.
You will be drawn into two different worlds, Amish and English.
     Katie found out she was adopted as a baby. Her whole world seems to be falling apart. She loves singing and playing her guitar, but Amish frown upon musical instruments and will only allow singing from their hymn books. What will she choose, what will she do?
  The actors/actresses in The Shunning are wonderful. They played their parts exceptionally well.  You know how some Christian films really lack in the acting abilities!  Well that isn’t the case with The Shunning. The casting is just superb.
   In this DVD you will find such love, goodness and tenderness that it is unbelievable. I love the way the Amish family wants to keep everyone close and keep them from going astray. I’m really glad to have this DVD and highly recommend it. Another DVD every person should have in their library.

I've heard so much about Beverly Lewis, but haven't read any of her books yet --I wanted to see this movie when it aired on Hallmark to see if I might be interested in reading the novel, but I missed it.

Thanks for the chance to win!
