I feel like the subtitle to this book is very misleading - this was a book about her childhood as Hutterite (and a little about attempting to live as the "English" do), not necessarily reclaiming her heritage.
I suppose an argument could be made that writing this book WAS reclaiming it in some way, but it ended so abruptly (she won a Mennonite beauty competition?!) We never really saw how Mary-Ann left her Hutterite heritage behind as she grew up and became an adult.
Regardless, I enjoyed this because it gave me insight on a subculture that I had never even heard of. I loved reading about their clothing-specific rules and my god, their food. It was like Little House on the Prairie all over again. I had a sandwich after I finished reading.
