Review: Johanna's World

Johanna's World is all about the Norwegian pioneers at Norsewood. It is translated by Johan Bonnevie.

The story is based on a true story about a girl named Johanna. She travels with her family in 1873 from Norway to New Zealand. They move for a better life from the poverty and hardship in their homeland.


Seen through the eyes of Johanna who experiences the difficulty of immigrating to a foreign country and trying to understand another language.

This historical fiction tells an amazing story of how a Norwegian family take a courageous journey. Well worth the read.
