The shunning was okay as far as reads goes. I always enjoy wholesome books so I enjoyed reading it but I would not classify it as a "can't put it down" book. I felt the the story fell flat in some places. The thing that really moved me was reading the absolute love that Rebecca had for Katie although she was not her birth mother. I felt bad for bishop John and his children. I would recommend this book to other readers as it is a nice clean story.

So when I first saw the book by my FAVORITE author I dropped my notebook and begged my mom to buy it for me. She did(love u Mommy!)and as soon as I got in the car I began to read it and as usual was consumed into it. I absolutely loved it and I was glad I read it. So I didn't watch the movie and I only will if it's exactly like this one. Full of mystery and NO SHE DIDNTs I beg u to pick a copy. You'll LOVE Katie(Katherine). And the suspense in Beverly Lewis' first novel. Bless u bunches love Mama Luv. :)

I have read many of Beverly Lewis' books and thoroughly enjoyed them. The Shunning was excellent and I could not put it down. The movie was highly anticipated and highly disappointing. The story was flat compared to the book and the actress of Katie Lapp looked like she was wearing eye makeup which looked completely out of character. Others I have talked to who saw the movie agree that they missed the mark on many levels. I watched the movie on TV, but I wouldn't buy the DVD unless you haven't read the book.
