The beginning of a trilogy set in medieval Norway, The Wreath chronicles the early life of Kristin Lavransdatter and her determination to marry the man of her choice. Sigrid Undset clearly knew the period well, as her narrative displays knowledge of daily life, medieval culture, and religion. As in the best of historical fiction, the main character of Kristin emerges as both a figure of her own period and a more modern one as well. A sympathetic character, I look forward to seeing how Kristin develops throughout the rest of this trilogy.
