Sometimes the choice for survival leads us to places we've never been to and lies we never should have told. In Because of Anna, one single act of violence changes the course of Anna Ersson's life. The daughter of a gatekeeper, raised on an estate in Sweden during the 1890's, Anna's life lies before her full of hope and promises just within her reach. But following one moment which changes her life forever, she is forced to flee to an unknown land across the ocean. Anna's secret past remains buried until her daughter discovers the truth, causing her children to abandon her. Anna endures hardships that threaten to break her yet she survives relying on her own strength, buoyed by events that remind her of why she must carry on. Anna's life weaves in and out of her children's, but especially that of her daughter as they try to heal their broken relationship, escaping the memories of their pasts while mending what remains of their family now scattered across the world.
