Mary-Ann Kirkby takes readers into the hidden heart of the little-known Hutterite colony in southern Manitoba where she spent her childhood. When she was ten years old her parents packed up their seven children and left the security of the colony to start a new life. With great humor‚ Kirkby describes how she adapted to popular culture; and with raw honesty‚ her family’s deep sense of loss for their community. This is a powerful tale of retracing steps and understanding how our beginnings often define us.
