“Hutterite to Independence”: a gripping and eye-opening tale of one woman’s escape from an oppressive, dictatorial religious society. “Hutterite to Independence” is the creation of published author, Esther Stahl Taylor, who was the first baby born to the Ayers Hutterite Colony, near Grass Range, Montana and the first woman that she knows of in the U.S. to break away from the colony.

The author writes: “This is the story, in her own words, of a woman who grew up in a dictatorial and oppressive religious society—one where individuals were told that swearing allegiance to the society got them to heaven. But God found this young woman and opened her heart and spirit to the truth of Jesus Christ and faith in him only.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Esther Stahl Taylor’s new book tells the jaw-dropping tale of one woman’s childhood and youth in an oppressive religious community in Montana. In addition to detailing the author’s lengthy struggle with the overbearing, dictatorial governance of the Hutterite society into which she was born, this book excels in highlighting the transformative power of the author’s discovery of Christ and eventual transition into regular society. At times heartbreaking, vexatious, and astounding, Stahl Taylor’s story is ultimately one of perseverance, faith, and a feel-good tale of victory against the odds.
