The Shunning Book Review

Beverly Lewis' The Shunning (Heritage of Lancaster County) by Beverly Lewis was an amazing book.  I have read a bunch of blogs with people who love Beverly Lewis but I haven't read any of her books.  One day at the library, I decided that I should check them out and went with one that was at the beginning of the series.  This was book one of the Heritage of Lancaster County and I can't wait to find out what is in book number two!!!!

I am so glad that I finally picked up Beverly Lewis!  A great new author and series to start reading since I just finished my last series of books.  I had another one lined up so I guess I will be going back and forth again!!  If you want a book filled with emotion, this is the book for you and I hope that you pick it up and see what you think!!!
