Young Anna Nordin, 14 years old, was determined to journey from a small farm in Sweden to the United States in 1893. Though fictionalized, the author has thoroughly researched the journey her great-aunt Anna took—preparations, her travel companions, the ships she sailed on, and what it was like to venture into a new world in Chicago.
