“Honoring Anna” by Douglas Hoff is the true story of his wife’s grandmother, Anna Ingevich, as she journeys from Norway to follow the American Dream in the early 20th century.

Hoff was inspired to write “Honoring Anna” to preserve a piece of family history and honor the life Anna, and many others led as Norwegian immigrants in the early 1900’s. On Anna’s journey and as she settles into her new life as an American citizen, she makes unbreakable bonds which are all tied together in a serendipitous ending of honor, love, and family.

"I hope to inspire our generation and future generations to their standards of honor and integrity," the author said.

“A wonderful and beautiful book,” said Sharon Costner. “I was blown away by the beauty of the story, and I became so involved with Anna that I felt like one of her friends.”
