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.
This Hallmark Channel movie will definitely pull on your heart-strings as you watch Katie and her Amish parents deal with the decisions that they have to make. As with any movie based on a book, there are some differences between the two, but for the most part, the storyline was the same.
Did I mention that I really love author Beverly Lewis? I highly recommend checking out her novels based on Amish life. Here is a little background information on her:
