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.

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

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.

Untied ends!
3 stars By Karen, Nov 25 2017
Enjoyed this movie and the peek into Amish life that it provides. Story line was interesting too although the acting left a bit to be desired.Biggest disappointment was that the movie leaves you very much up in the air. I highly recommend that you buy all 3 of the series rather than a single movie as it will leave you frustrated! The series is worth buying.

good movie
4 stars By Candid, Oct 14 2017
This movie is a nice lay back movie. It has happy and sad moments, I would recommend watching. Please note it has a open ending and you may wish to have the next movie to watch after it.

Good family watching
4 stars By KM, Oct 11 2016
watching Shunning reawakened the reality in our society today, especially as Christians and the many times we exclude others either knowingly or unknowingly to those who are different to us.  It is mind provoking to self-question!

not bad
3 stars By Emma , Nov 18 2015
I found the book a lot better than the movie, it misses a lot of detail which you read about in the book, its something you can watch once, but the acting and of the quality of the movie is poor. Its a great story, but its a better idea to read the book.
