Three volumes in one (The Bridal Wreath, The Mistress of Husaby, The Cross). Translated by Charles Archer (1927).
A landmark among historical novels, Kristin Lavransdatter is part of the body of work that won Sigrid Undset the Nobel Prize for 1928. This trilogy of more than one thousand pages follows its title character through her life in fourteenth-century Scandinavia. It is a novel full of big and dramatic happenings: romantic intrigues, political schemes, and spiritual debates. It is also a novel about one woman's life. Sigrid Undset makes us understand Kristin's love for her sons and husband, the feeling of milk in her breasts, and the hard work of living in the fourteenth century. As does any good historical novel, Kristin Lavransdatter immerses us in its time through rich details concerning dress and manners as well as social and historical events. The multitude of character names is confusing at first, but if you stick with it, Sigrid Undset will give you a first-hand experience of another world. — From 500 Great Books by Women; review by Erica Bauermeister

This book is being removed from the 1001-library. I am planning a cross-country move and I am reducing the number of books in my possession. I did read all three of these books decades ago. Being half-Norwegian, although born in America, I was interested in learning about the country of my forebears. I must admit that I found it all very perplexing to me. My father also read the books at the same time as me, he of 100 per cent Norwegian heritage and had a hard time identifying with Kristin's character. (Well, he is a man.)
