Have you ever wondered what life was like on a Hutterite Colony and why some would choose to walk away, despite the likelihood of being shunned by their family?

The book The Nine highlights a group of nine ex-Hutterites sharing their life experience with you during a "Meet the Authors" time at Barnes & Noble in Sioux
