"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."

"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
