She was so popular that her books were translated into 34 languages.. Her novels describe her homeland of Sweden, and in Jerusalem the focus is on the province of Dalecarlia. The novel describes how a Chicago mystic sparks a religious revival in the community that leads people to sell their possessions and conduct a mass pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
