I Am Hutterite by: Mary-Ann Kirkby *Review, and Giveaway*
Sunday, July 4, 2010
In 1969 Ann-Marie Donn's parents did the unthinkable. They left the colony with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, they were thrust into a society they didn't understand, and that knew little of their unique culture. The transition was overwhelming. Desperate to be accepted, ten-year-old Ann-Marie was forced to deny her heritage in order to fit in with her peers. She Kept her secret well into adulthood, hoping to avoid the prejudice so associated with her culture.
I Am Hutterite Chronicles her quest to come to terms with a painful past. Rich with memorable characters and vivid descriptions, this ground-breaking narrative shines a light on intolerance, illuminating the simple truth, that beneath every human exterior beats a heart longing for understanding a acceptance.
