About this title

Synopsis:

Britta, along with her mother and siblings, makes the long journey from Finland to Minnesota in the early 1900s to reunite with her father and leave poverty behind. They face numerous obstacles along the way, and Britta struggles to learn English so she can help her mother surmount their many difficulties. This is a heart-warming account of an actual family's emigration to America.

About the Author:

A retired English teacher, Ann Marie lives on a wilderness lake with her husband Jerry and their two dogs. She grew up in Minneapolis, and in her mid-twenties she and her husband moved north to the wilderness they'd always loved. She has two grown sons who live in California and Puerto Rico. After 30 years of teaching English in Minnesota, she moved overseas to complete her teaching career in Istanbul, writing weekly e-mail missives and posting blogs about her experiences there. Ann Marie discovered her passion to write in the late 90 s. She wrote a weekly newspaper column for five years, wrote numerous articles for newspapers and magazines, and published three books. Her first was Britta s Journey~An Emigration Saga (2004), written about the emigration of a family that settled near her home. Her second book, Istanbul s Bazaar Quarter, Backstreet Walking Tours (2009), was a collaboration with Edda Renker Weissenbacher, a Turkish woman who guided small groups on walking tours through Istanbul. The third (2016) was You must only to love them, Lessons Learned in Turkey, a self-published memoir of her years teaching in Turkey. Ann Marie writes every day but always finds time for hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, skiing, or snowshoeing in the wilderness she calls home.
