In the quiet Amish community of Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania, time has stood still while cherished traditions and heartfelt beliefs have flourished. But a secret lies buried that could shatter the tranquility its inhabitants have grown to love. On the eve of her wedding, Katie Lapp hears startling news from her anguished parents. Nothing could have prepared her for the devastation their confession brings. Feeling betrayed, Katie watches as the only life she has ever known begins to unravel, leaving in its wake a furrow of pain but also a future of hope. The Shunning is the first book in a trilogy that re-creates the simple life of the Amish. Its themes of hope and reconciliation show us that even when we think we are far away, God's love is always present.
