The Shunning DVD Review & Giveaway

Do you remember the book The Shunning by Beverly Lewis? I remember reading it as a teenager and although I have never been a big fan of fiction I found this book to be a terrific one. Well now they are coming out with a DVD version. Great for this busy Mom who seldom has anytime to read anything anymore!

Watch the trailer here.

Here's some background:

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 movie is great! Even hubby watched it (don't think he'd say it was great but he did enjoy it.) I actually fell asleep during our first viewing (ah, life with a newborn) so I had to watch it again.

The acting is great, the lead actress even sings a little song that is sweet. From what I remember of the book the movie holds true to the original plot.

The movie is refreshingly clean.  Not a hint of violence or vulgar speech. The story is pure and this would qualify as a great family film. There are however a couple of kisses exchanged between the main characters. The film was given the family approval for all ages and Beverly Lewis herself is very happy with the finished product. The film has been so well accepted in fact that the sequel is already in the works.

Now for the fun part. I have the opportunity to offer 1 copy of this DVD to one of my readers. If you enjoyed the book series then you may want to enter cause I have a hunch you'll enjoy the movie version too!!!
