I am Hutterite by Mary-Ann Kirkby is an autobiographical look at life as a Hutterite. Mary-Ann Kirkby spent the first 10 years of her life living in a Hutterite colony until her parents chose to leave because of political problems. She then must find a way to fit into the rest of society as she grows into an adult.
This story really did read like fiction. It was interesting, well paced and a great read. I'd not known much about the Hutterite community before this and thanks to Kirkby, I have a much better understanding of their beliefs and their ways. I even found myself sometimes thinking that that kind of life wouldn't be so bad. I fell in love with many of the people she described. I especially enjoyed that it takes place in Manitoba. Being Canadian, I love reading books about or by other Canadians. This book made me smile and left me wanting more.
I received this book for free from Booksneeze in exchange for an impartial review.
