Happy Times in Norway
by Sigrid Undset, Norway.
A moving and delicately humorous picture of Sigrid Unset's own blissful home before her nation fell to the Nazi occupation. Captured here is the excitement of a Norwegian Christmas, the celebration of Syttende Mai, and summer in the idyllic mountains, as well as her chaotic personal adventure of raising two energetic boys. With vivid detail and illuminating decriptions of the landscape, it is infused with the wish that those cherished days would return.
