It's A Giveaway! The Shunning DVD from Hallmark Channel

The Shunning 
Hallmark Channel
A Film by Michael Landon Jr.
88 minutes long

DVD Review and Giveaway

I recently received a free DVD copy of the Hallmark Channel's The Shunning movie to view and provide an honest review.  Having read about the bestselling Lancaster County books by Beverly Lewis but not having had a chance to read them, I'm very glad I was given the opportunity.  This movie was really good.  Although I can't compare it to the book for obvious reasons, I now want to get the books and read them.
Have you ever made choices and regretted them later in life?  Have you ever wondered what if I had only ... ?  In this movie from Hallmark Channel you get a glimpse of how that scenario could play out.
"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 film, based on the first novel of the best-selling "The Heritage of Lancaster County" book series from author Beverly Lewis, stars Danielle Panabaker & Sherry Stringfield.

The acting and storyline of this moving movie kept me watching with eager anticipation to see what would happen next.  Although I understand the concept of shunning, I cannot imagine having to shun my own child.  This movie touches this parent's heart and makes me appreciate my daughter and her choices.  This one really made me think about those "what-ifs" we all have in the back of our minds.  The only downside to the movie was that it made me want to know what happened next--guess I'll have to wait to find out.  I'll be visiting the library soon to find out from the books.  I'll also be eagerly waiting for Hallmark to follow-up this fabulous movie.
