Description
Of Sigrid Undset's Kristin Lavransdatter, the New York Herald Tribune proclaimed, "No other novelist has bodied forth the medieval world with such richness and fullness." In this new edition award-winning translator Tiina Nunnally not only captures the modern beauty of this historical epic set in fourteenth-century Norway, but also restores passages omitted from the original English translation.

Immersing readers in the daily life, social conventions, and political undercurrents of the day, Kristin Lavransdatter portrays in rich detail the life of a passionate and willful woman in medieval Norway. The Wife (1921) chronicles Kristin's marriage to Erlend Nikulausson, a man whose singleminded determination to become an influential social and political figure forces Kristin to take over the management of Erland's long-neglected estate, Husaby, while raising their seven sons. Expanding on themes introduced in The Wreath, Undset's story of a distant past bears striking parallels to modern society, and, in the strong-willed Kristin, depicts a wonderfully drawn heroine whom generations of readers have come to love.
