About the Author

Born into an all white, upper middle class community along the shores of Lake Erie, the author attended university during the tumultuous 60's. After marching on Washington in Peace Protests, she meets and marries a Saudi in 1969; just years after interracial unions were illegal in more than a dozen states.

After graduation, the couple and their young son move to Saudi Arabia where she gives birth to another son. This period from 1970 to 1977...before, during and after the discovery of documented in An American Behind the Veil, written by the author.

Moving back to Southern California (during the Beach Boy era), she divorces her Saudi husband of 20 years and buries her oldest son at 32. She then begins a new adventure and moves to a 15-acre homestead in the isolated hills of Northern Idaho, where she still lives with Ben, her husband and soul mate.

A student of life, the author challenges Anna with the lessons she's learned. Imprinting the pages with provocative scenarios the author has spun Anna's Journey into an insightful tale: full of intrigue, mystery and self-discovery...with a sprinkle of romance.

The book was compelling with flowing descriptions that pulled me in. Woven into the narrative is a detailed history of early Idaho homesteading which winds to the present with interesting twists and turns. As Anna bridges the gap, we learn about ourselves as well. Fun. BJH
