I just finished reading this book last night.
It is the true story of Mary-Ann a young girl coming of age in a Hutterite Colony in Manitoba and then adjusting to life in the outside world. I found it both fascinating and heartwarming. A nice light summer read while bathing in the sun!
I love the fact that at first no one would publish Mary-Ann’s book so she created her own publishing company – Polka Dot Dress and published it herself! The book has now been printed three times and is a National Best Seller! I absolutely love when good things happen to good people!
