When I asked for an 1100 page book for Christmas, I thought that perhaps it would take me most of the year to finish; I was wrong. The book is a Norwegian trilogy that was translated from Swedish. The book takes place in Norway in the middle Ages. I completed this book in less than three months and I couldn’t put it down.
This book is one of those books that in a few years I will have to go back and re-read. It is not just a novel with a good story, but a novel that speaks to the soul. It is a novel that follows a the life of a little girl from the age of seven until her death-bed in her fifties. It is a novel about sin, conviction, consequence, repentance, grace, and struggle. This is a novel that anyone can read and find something to identify with.
I consider this a good book because it will cause you to carefully examine your life. It is one of those books that will teach you something new each time you read it. I HIGHlY recommend it and if anyone chooses to read it, let me know! I would love to discuss it and read it along with you.
