The Shunned — Synopsis

"This was my first M/M Amish romance, and from the first sentence to the last I was captured by Jay Hughes's writing style, his descriptive abilities, and his knack of keeping the story moving and always interesting. I learned things about the Amish community I didn't know, and I fell in love with the characters along the way. And most of all I enjoyed the romance that blossoms between a simple young Amish boy who is trying to find his way in the world, and a slick Main Line Philadelphia lawyer who is far from innocent." --Best-selling author Ryan Field

THE SHUNNED is the gay version of WITNESS----only with a happy ending.

James Semerad is a young gay man who grew up Amish in the secluded Amish community of Lofstad in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He's trying to build a new life in the modern world after fleeing the repressive Amish world of his youth, which rejected him. Just as James is growing accustomed to living a modern-day life in the big city of Philadelphia, though, he meets Fred Billingsley, an old-money Main Line lawyer who is also a flamboyantly gay man. Fred picks James up after going through his checkout line at Whole Foods, and they go out on James' first date ever with another man. But what starts out as a fun date turns into a wild shootout-----Fred is a lawyer to the Philadelphia mob, and he has unwittingly dragged James into the middle of a mob war. Their only safe haven is to go into witness protection in the secluded Amish community of Lofstad, the repressive, devout place where James grew up.

Customer Reviews

Michelle (Friday, 11 February 2011)
Rating:
This book reads like a grudge-inspired screed against the Amish. True, the Amish do not condone homosexuality, but in this book they're portrayed as
having a joyless existence altogether. I also couldn't buy the relationship between the two main characters. They go from a potential one-night-stand
to being antagonistic to a happy-ever-after with no coherent reasoning for any of the shifts. I don't like to write a negative review, but I really
didn't enjoy any aspect of this story.
