Editorial Reviews

Review

"There's elegant restraint in how Rose articulates love and loss,passion and madness, the rhythm of farm life, the quietude of ruralNorway. In this book, I saw shades of both Sigrid Undset and WillaCather...Even if you aren't typically a historical fiction fan, consider this novel--it's a wonderful snapshot of a place and a time set intradition but uprooted by enormous transition. A story of ordinarywomen, unique and astounding in their own way, that will charm andcaptivate." - Unabridged Chick

"I was touched by this book, by its very poignant starkness...a gentle tale with quiet depth, atmospherically starkyet richly detailed like the culture and people of Norge herself.Beautiful. The prose was simple yet expressive; no fancy writinggimmicks or extraneous details, but every word was carefully chosen."
- Queen's Quill Review

"Oleanna is women's historical fiction at its finest. Ithoroughly enjoyed every word and highly recommend it as a fascinatingread, giving insight into a lesser known country and period in history." - Historical Novel Review

"Oleanna is a fabulous character. She's strong but personable anddefinitely the sort of character that you find yourself rootingfor...Historical fiction lovers will eat this book up!" - A Bookish Affair

"This is a novel of quiet depth that evokes strong imagery; it is a story that is stark and humble and at the same time, finely drawn. Theawe-inspiring scenery, the backbreaking work, and, at the same time, the appeal of and sense of belonging the women feel for their home arebrightly painted through the author's judicious use of language. Abeautiful story." - Historical Novels Review

About the Author

Julie K. Rose is an author of historical fiction, fascinated by stories and settings slightly off the beaten track. From 12th century Burgundy in The Pilgrim Glass, to early 20th century Norway in Oleanna, to 1930s Tunisia in Dido's Crown, she has a deep love for history and a terrible case of wanderlust. Her love of language, history, and art history led her to degrees in Humanities and English - and a lifelong passion for creativity.

Julie lives in the Bay Area with her husband and rescue cats, and loves reading, following the San Francisco Giants, and enjoying the amazing natural beauty of Northern California.
