I can't think of a word to describe the reaction from the townspeople?
Their gossiping about the Rev...
Suprised... I'm stuck
A Rev comes to town and the next day the whole town talks about the Rev

I can't suggest a word to describe the townspeople's reaction without knowing the context. In what story or book does this scenario occur?

The Minister's Black Veil
by: Nathaniel Hawthrone 
its on page 2142
The place where I have to find the reaction is only from the Paragraph that starts with: "The next day, the whole village of Milford talked of little else than Parson Hooper's black veil. That, and the mystery concealed behing it, supplied a topic for discussion between acquaintances meeting in the street..."(Hawthrone) 
Some words you could use:
awed
superstitious
curious
concerned
confused

Perhaps "confused" and "curious" describe this best.

Thank you

You're welcome.
