 Anna's House - The American Colony in Jerusalem
    
by Odd Karsten Tveit

The Story Behind the American Colony in Jerusalem:

Anna’s House tells the story of a young Norwegian girl whose family emigrated to America mid-19th century. Through willpower and iron determination she overcame personal tragedy, leaving America to establish a unique religious community in Jerusalem, the American Colony. Over the decades, members of the colony witnessed at first hand the shaping of today’s Middle East. Anna’s House is a gripping tale of personal struggles in a politically turbulent corner of the world.

Critical Acclaim:

'This is history at its best. Gripping story told with love and knowledge.' - Dagbladet, Norways foremost cultural newspaper
