Olav Audunssøn #3 Crossroads

by Sigrid Undset, Norway,
translated by Tiina Nunnally.
Heartbroken by loss and further estranged from his son, Olav leaves his home estate of Hestviken and agrees to serve as captain on a small merchant ship headed to London. Past decisions and future plans cause him to question his perceptions of love and guilt, sin and penitence, vengeance and forgiveness. The intimate drama and epic sweep of Olav's story evokes a powerful picture of northern life in medieval times.
