Cast from her Mennonite family for marrying a Mexican man she barely knows, 19-year-old Irma finds herself in an untenable situation. But when a film crew arrives to document her insular community, Irma begins a remarkable journey to redemption and discovering all she may become.

Getting it right.
In my opinion, not Toews best.
I love Miriam Toews and I love Erin Moon but Irma was too immature for me to "get." But since Moon's reading of Toews' All My Puny Sorrows was one of my favorite books, I'll be back for more. Of course, I don't really know what girls and women from Mennonite families sound like but Erin Moon adds to the sympathetic look that Toews provides and until Irma in this third book that I've listened to, I was really engaged by each character to whom I was introduced.
