Mennonite Girl from Russia
This book is inspired by the first wave of Mennonite migration from Russia to Canada in 1874. The story of heroic fortitude illuminates the lives and deep character of the people who helped shaped the prairie land.
The story’s universal themes of unspeakable hardships and forgiveness are timeless and pulse with resonance of every woman’s life. Fourteen-year-old Katarina’s entire Mennonite community leaves their farms and homes in Russia for a foreign land. The characters reveal a bird’s eye view of women persevering unthinkable odds in a culture of the unspoken – marriages of convenience, forbidden loves, taboo conversations and stoic practices carried in their life blood.
