2.0 von 5 Sternen These are not the Amish I know 9. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I hesitate to make negative comments about this and the other books in this series since they have been rated so highly by others. However, I feel obligated to my many Amish friends to set the record straight. I read the Shunning, The Confession and The Reckoning, and was very much disturbed by the way the Amish were treated. In some ways it is evident that the author did a great deal of book research because she has many facts quite right; such as the given and family names of the characters. In other ways it would appear that she has had very little actual contact with real Amish people. My suspicion is that the Amish friends she claims to have are actually X Amish who have a lot of criticism and bitterness toward their people. Lewis judges the Amish by modern Evangelical standards and makes them look like heathens with bones through their noses in need of the Gospel. The Amish do have a different understanding of salvation than do Evangelicals and Fundamentalists, but to say they are not Christian is carrying it too far. Lewis would no doubt also have serious disagreements on theological matters with Catholics, most Lutherans and Pentecostals. There are many factual errors in the Shunning and the other two books in the series. The greatest error in The Shunning is the portrayal of the Amish not being allowed to talk to those who are excommunicated. My Amish friends tell me that they are expected to talk to those in the ban in order to win them back to the church. Lewis somewhat corrects this in the other books to make it look like the silent treatment was the individual pronoucement of one particular bishop. Lewis does not mention the Biblical basis for shunning which she apparently does not understand. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

I am an avid reader and lover of Amish history. These 2 passions drew me to a display containing "The Shunning" when we were traveling and stopped to eat at a little restaurant-gift shop. I just had to get up from my meal and take a look at the book. I was so interested I had to read it. The characters were exciting people, individual in spite of being identical! Katie especially intrigued me! She was so fiesty, so different, opinionated, yet family oriented. How could she expect to be happy at any one place when the whole world called to her? I felt empathy for Katie's Amish parents because having a daughter like her surely was a test in their community! Yet, I felt Katie's pain...her uncertainty...her desires...what part in her longterm future would Mary play? How could Katie endure without Dan, her soul mate? How could she marry a man she did not love? Why must she be forced to live without the beautiful, soothing music she adored? Was it sin, or simply protocol? It was easy to keep switching my loyalty from one group to the other...they all had some good ideas. I thought I understood Katie and her inquisitive nature, yet I wanted to scold her for being ungrateful and even spiteful to her parents at times. I seemed to have love-hate for one person, then another! I think this author, Bev Lewis, surely must have an interesting else could she think of so many wonderfully surprising events? For a book that led one to think it was going to be about a fairly dull family, living in a fairly dull town, with fairly dull ideals, there certainly was a trememdous amount of excitement nontheless! People DID have feelings, they DID experience emotions, and Katie Lapp was determined to live them in addition to just feeling them! Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Like so many people, I've always been interested in the Amish people. While I'm certain The Reckoning is primarily fiction, I think it may have given me an over all feel of the Amish way of life. I enjoyed the characters. I also enjoyed the fact that it was, in spite of the story's controversial problems, a peaceful read. Sometimes that's just what I want. I wasn't disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A terrific book! 30. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I absolutely loved this book and would recommend it to everyone. The life of the Amish is facinating and it just tugged at my heartstrings what this young woman had to go through as well as her family and friends. I am purchasing the sequels as well. Once you start reading it, you don't want to stop. I hope there will be continued series of these books in the future also.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing Ending 15. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
When I pick up a book like this, I am looking for good "light" reading to give me a bit of escape and hopefully learn a little. However, I repeatedly find that trilogies of this nature use a "hook" at the end of the story to get you to read the next book. In my opinion, a book (even the first book of a trilogy) should come to some sort of closure at the end. The reader should be drawn to read the next book soley because he/she has become attached to the people and places in the book and wants to find out more about them, NOT because of some gimmick the author created to keep people guessing. But this book leaves the reader hanging. I simply did not want to read through two more books to find out how this story ended.

I simply couldn't put this book down! Almost every girl, on the verge of adulthood, looks back over all she's been taught and attempts to decide which values are truly hers and which ones she never really accepted as her own. Katie grows up, always feeling like she must be "wrong" for wanting fancy things and never really feeling Amish. Then she finds the reason for her distress and a whole new world of possibilities are now open to her. I learned so much about Amish life from the story. I felt like I was living in the Lapp household. I smiled, I gasped, and yes, I cried for Katie. Beverly Lewis did an awesome job - can't wait for "The Confession"
