What really makes a family?

Cancer-stricken Laura Mayfield-Bennett's dying wish is to be reunited with the child she never knew. But her daughter, Katie Lapp, is part of the Amish order.

On the eve of her wedding to a handsome Amish widower, Katie makes the shocking discovery that threatens to unravel the only life she's ever known. Why would Katie's mother, a simple Amish woman who embraces the Old Ways, keep a beautiful satin baby dress in a world of woolen cape dresses? And why is an "Englisher" woman searching for Katie?

The answer sends Katie on a painful quest to uncover a secret past that alienates her from her community before she can find healing.

Bonus section includes a note from the author and photographs from the set of the motion picture!

Movie Edition of Landmark Amish Novel

When Katie Lapp finds the satin infant gown in the dusty leather trunk of her parents' attic, she knows it holds a secret she must discover. Why else would her Amish mother, a plain and simple woman who embraces the Old Order laws, hide the beautiful baby dress in the attic? But nothing could have prepared Katie for the startling news that stumbles out of her anguished parents on the eve of her wedding to Bishop John. Will Katie suddenly find herself a stranger in the community she has always called home?

Now in a special edition to coincide with the release of the Hallmark Channel movie, this poignant story of redemptive love offers readers a fascinating glimpse into the cloistered world of the Amish and the traumatic, life-shaking experience known as The Shunning.

Beverly Lewis

Beverly Lewis was born Beverly Marie Jones in 1949, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and grew up in the heart of 'Pennsylvania Dutch' country. She played and composed on the piano and wrote avidly from a very young age. Beverly's father was an Assemblies of God pastor, and she was raised in that denomination. However, she became fascinated with her ancestral links to the Old Order Mennonite community into which her maternal grandmother, Ada Buchwalter, had been born. Beverly's deep affinity for her Amish heritage has inspired much of her prodigious literary output - over eighty books for both children and adults.

Beverly graduated from Evangel University with a degree in Music Education, and became a schoolteacher. When her own three children were middle school age, Beverly began submitting stories to children's magazines. Her first book Mountain Bikes and Garbanzo Beans was published in 1993.

Beverly's first adult fiction, published in 1997, was the Heritage of Lancaster County trilogy, about the experiences of a young Amish woman Katie Lapp as she moves from the plain traditions of her upbringing into the modern world. Beverly has followed this award-winning bestseller with a stream of popular titles that have established her as one of our time's most beloved storytellers. Her titles include the Cul-De-Sac Kids, the Girls Only (GO!), and the Holly's Heart series for children, and the Amish based Rose, Seasons of Grace, Abram's Daughter, The Courtship of Nellie Fisher, and Annie's People series. She has received numerous awards including two Silver Angel Awards for her novels The Postcard and Annika's Secret Wish, and a Golden Book Award for The Shunning, the first volume of her Heritage of Lancaster County series.

Beverly is a member of the National League of American Pen Women as well as a Distinguished Alumnus of Evangel University. She says of her leisure:

"When I'm between writing deadlines, I enjoy hiking in the Rocky Mountains with my husband. Cooking from scratch, playing Mozart at the piano, and making family memory albums, as well as traveling to meet my devoted readers during book tours, are some of my very favorite things. I also adore reading biographies and memoirs, as well as classic literature."

She makes her home with her husband David in Colorado. In addition to their three adult children, they have three grandchildren.
