I Am Hutterite Book Review

Book Review of I Am Hutterite, by Mary-Ann Kirkby
 "The fascinating true story of a young woman's journey to reclaim her heritage."

This book will immediately envelop the reader.  It's poignant, moving and also joyous.  The author will bring you to tears over her path to forgiveness.  She will bring a smile to your face by the simplicity in her words.  You will learn more about the Hutterite people within these pages, than you will in any text.  Kirkby not only gives you the details of the Hutterite ways, she also brings to life their emotions, thoughts and strict religious attributes.  You will fall in love with all three generations that are chronicled in Kirkby's book.  You will remember the names, the German Hutterisch language and the love and unity that tied these people together.  From births to deaths, love and hate, freedom and inner-slavery, this book is sure to please.
