In “I Am Hutterite” Kirby takes us on a journey into the Hutterite community . At ten she was packed up, along with her 6 siblings. Her parents left the community and was pushed into a unknown world as such. Kirby provides a lot of history along with a very honest look into the colony. As she takes us on the journey she reconciles her self with her heritage.
When I saw the title I knew I had to read this book. I had never heard of the Hutterite colony, but I knew this was exactly what I was looking for. A change from what I normally read.
Kirby is so descriptive in her writing about the colony and community life I could easily call this is a living book. I loved the feeling of being with her. I could imagine every situation, I treasured the feeling of emotions that pour out of this book. Her journey is so full of life, the words all filled with honesty, she doesn’t shy away from the painful moments. I was teary in quite a few places where I felt so aware of the struggles her family faced.
This is certainly a book I would buy for friends and family. It makes me look at my own life and makes me want to treasure those around me so much more.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com <http://BookSneeze.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
