"The nicely drawn contrast between what Irma knows and suspects and what the reader understands about her world gives Irma Voth a suspenseful charge from the first pages." --Jane Smiley, Globe and Mail (Toronto)
In a rare coming-of-age novel that blends dark truths with uplifting transformations, acclaimed author Miriam Toews delivers the story of a young Mennonite woman, vulnerable yet wise beyond her years, who carries the burden of a terrible family secret with her during a remarkable journey of survival and redemption. Irma Voth, from the award-winning author of Swing Low and A Complicated Kindness, is a poignant and elegant exploration of one woman's difficult odyssey to discover her own potential--a path that leads her away from her close-knit community and into the wide and unknown world beyond.
