I Am Hutterite Review



I am Hutterite is a fantastic book about a young woman who has to transition from being a member of a tight Hutterite community to a part of wider society. It's a fast read- I was able to finish it in a day and a half, even with being at home with the kiddos! Not only was this book an interesting look at what goes on in close-knit Amish-like communities (although, to be clear, Hutterites are not Amish), but it also helped me better understand the perspective of an outsider. Hopefully this book will not only provide interesting information for the curious, but also will create compassion in those who have never had the experience of adjusting and fitting into a new culture.

Hi, I found this book to be a bit slow...perhaps that was because I was born and raised in a Hutterite colony. Actually I still live in one. I found all the detailed descriptions a bit tedious. I have my personal review of this book posted on my blog. Check it out if you can find the time.
