A fascinating memoir revealing the unique culture of the Hutterite religious community.
I Am Hutterite takes readers into the hidden heart of the little-known Hutterite colony where author Mary-Ann Kirkby spent her childhood. When she was ten her parents packed up their seven children and a handful of possessions and left the colony to start a new life. Faced with ridicule and rejection in the English world, the book chronicles her bittersweet journey to reclaim her heritage as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led the family to leave community life.

The story itself as well as the narration was wonderful. I have lent it to several friends who also loved the book and bought this copy to give as a gift. One of my favorite books this past year! Not only a great story but a enlightening glimpse into a different culture.
Tina Coveney4 Stars Out Of 5July 1, 2010Tina CoveneyThis was an unusual book and it was fascinating to read the history of the Hutterites - a religious community I had never heard of before. Mary-Ann speaks from the heart throughout the book and describes her innermost feelings from early childhood, including the thoughts and feelings of her parents during that time.Day-to-day life in the Hutterite community is described in great detail, from the clothing styles to the food eaten. I found it very interesting indeed. I was surprised too by some of the things which were allowed by the community leaders, such as alcohol consumption. I did find it difficult at times to keep up with all the different family members who are named and described. Generations of people are talked about, and it can become a bit confusing. A lot of the old language is used in the book too, but there is a glossary in the back so that you can find out what Mary-Ann is referring to.My heart went out to all the children mentioned in the book, including Mary-Ann herself. It is a sobering thought that the decisions we make as parents have far-reaching effects on our children.I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program.
