This masterpiece by the Nobel Prize-winning Norwegian author, first published in 1927, has never gone out of print. "The Wreath" is the first 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. In this installment, young Kristin Lavransdatter -- beautiful, wild, and passionate --engages in a romance with a man whom her father strongly dislikes. The other two parts of the trilogy are also available, "The Mistress of Husaby" (NOR16) and "The Cross" (NOR17).
