This masterpiece by the Nobel Prize-winning Norwegian author, first published in 1927, has never gone out of print. This is the second volume in Undset's trilogy of historical novels recreating a woman's life during the Middle Ages in devoutly Catholic Norway. The books combine scholarly knowledge of the era with keen psychological analysis to produce a vividly realistic picture of the past. The second installment tells of Kristin's turbulent married life on the estate of Husaby, to which her husband has taken her.
