"Your mother and father are running away," said a voice piercing the warm air. I froze and turned toward home. To a Hutterite, nothing is more shameful than that word, running away, Weglaufen..." In 1969, Ann-Marie's parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony in Canada with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, the family was thrust into a society they did not understand and which 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. I Am Hutterite chronicles her quest to reinvent herself as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led her family to leave community life. 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 and acceptance.… (mais)

This was a wonderfully rich read, with lots of honest gritty details about the author's childhood living in a Hutterite colony ~replete with descriptions of the food, the constant companionship of the fellow Hutterite families, (most of which were large, with 7 kids each), the banter and teasing, the unique clothing and the prayer meetings and leadership. Kirkby describes a happy childhood, where there is always an abundance of food and an abundance of things to do. There are many chores and the life is very structured, but she felt security therein and did not want to leave. When she is 10, her parents decide to leave the colony and strike out on their own.

Although Kirkby's transition to 'English' life is hard, she tells the story with grace. Kirkby does not pass over some of the rigid teachings however; she does not gloss over the harsh, power-hungry uncle's leadership and its terrible consequences. And the tragedies that befall them and other families.

I enjoyed learning about her experience and recommend this book to anyone who is interested in firsthand accounts of people living in alternative communities. ( )

I acquired this book to learn a bit more about the Hutterites, as some lived near a town I lived in as a young lad. The book fulfilled my hopes and I appreciate the time and effort the author took to write it.

The author does not bash Hutterites, nor does she elevate them. She just tells her story, mostly occurring in the early years of her life.

A number of photos enhance the book. There is no index. ( )

This was an informative read about life in a Hutterite colony. I was a little frustrated though, by the mis-alignment of the subtitle -- A young woman's journey to reclaim her heritage -- and the book itself. Well over half the book deals with the author's early life in the colony. After her parents "run away" from that life, the book talks about the author's challenges with fitting into English society. There is very little about losing/reclaiming her heritage, which I think would have been most interesting. Still worth reading with the proper expectations. ( )

Interesting book written about a girl's childhood, living in a communal type of religious community in Canada. The Hutterites spring from the Anabaptist movement, like the Amish did, but believe in sharing possessions - food, money, tools, etc. Like the Amish, sometimes a family has a conflict with the religious leader of their colony, and the family joins another colony or leaves altogether, as Mary Ann's family did.

I found the information in the book fascinating. Alas, I also found the writing style jerky, and not entirely engaging.

And all that believed were together,
And had all things in common;
And sold their possessions and goods,
And parted them to all men,
As every man had need.
