So, I joined Booksneeze and have been able to request books and review them for free. Which not only is an awesome freebie but also gives me a chance to read new books. Ones that I would not normally read. It's opened my eyes :) This time I requested Mary-Ann Kirby's I Am Hutterite.
It's a fascinating true story of a young woman's journey to reclaim her heritage.
In 1969, Ann-Marie Dornn's parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony near Portage La Prairie, Manitoba with seven children and little else, to start a new life. In one day, they were thrown into a world they knew nothing about and the world they were in, knew very little about them. Obviously, it was quite overwhelming. Ann-Marie, who was only 10 years old then, was forced to deny her background and where she came from in order to try to fit in.
This book basicaly chronicles her life and mission to reinvent herself as she learns about the painful circumstances that forced her family to leave behind teh only life she knew.
It's a really good book and extremely interesting and I definitly give it thumbs up. I just wish some parts weren't as slow as they were. I'm just not used to reading true stories or biographies or anything of that nature nor this. So overall, I liked it. :)
