Anna's House


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.


'Masterful…It is a great accomplishment to keep a constant high level of suspense without affecting the historical correctness. The reader gets the feeling of learning yet is entertained. This is history at its best. '
