Known for her novel Kristin Lavransdatter, a trilogy on life in Norway in the Middle Ages, Sigrid Undset(1882-1949) was born in Denmark before her family moved to Norway when she was two. Her writings are filled with the atmosphere of her country and have a mostly historical tone. This novel, however, focuses on the different characters in the story and presents a web of distinct, yet interconnected lives.
