an interesting read

The Shunning, by Beverly Lewis, focusses on the events that unfold leading up to the wedding of Katie Lapp, a young Amish woman. Katie lives in a quiet, peaceful Amish community in Pennsylvania, where all the traditions and beliefs of the Amish are still practiced and kept very much alive.

Katie discovers a secret in the attic while looking for her mother's wedding dress. This secret will change her life forever and alter the way she looks at the world around her. This secret will affect all the beliefs and traditions she grew up with and held close to her heart.

This is a story of life, lessons, traditions, family, community, betrayal, hurt...and hope. It's an interesting peek into the life of the Amish and the struggle young Katie must deal with regarding who she is.

This book is not one I'd ordinarily pick up at a book store, but my MIL read it and passed it onto me to see what I thought. I've always been interested in the Amish, but never really did much research on the lifestyle and their faith. Less than 300 pages, this is an easy read to do in a day or so (in between work, of course)!
