The Shunning by Beverly Lewis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Katie Lapp always knew there was something different about her, apart from her auburn locks. She was spirited and loved music, she often thought about the colors of dress she has seen on the "English".
She didn't want to disobey God, but she didn't really think she was. She tried to be a good daughter, listening to her parents. But there were parts of her always wondered if there was something else other then the Amish ways.
After a discovery in the attic she is left wondering even more who she is and where is that she belongs. She walks out on her wedding day, realizing settling with out these answers would only lead to much regrets and what ifs.
I liked The Shunning, it wasn't the best of Amish fiction I have read but enjoyable all the same. A little predictable, a little frustrating, well a lot frustrating at times. Those times when I wanted to yell at my book and ask how you could do that to someone you love, and call them hypocrites.
I'll be on the look out for the next book.
