Kristen Lavransdatter trilogy: Reviewed

Author:Sigrid Undset
Reading Level (Conceptual):For grown-ups
Reading Level (Vocabulary):For grown-ups
Genre:fiction
Year of publication:1923

Undset won the Nobel Prize in literature for this work set in 14th century Norway.

Involving for an adult reading it, but very difficult to read, perhaps because the translation is old. The theme of the book: struggling to avoid pre-marital sex is difficult, even among church-loving people. Fascinating, detailed depictions of life on the farms, and in villages, towns and convents of medieval Norway.
