it was amazing

I read the trilogy 40 years ago and really liked it, and as I finished it for the 2nd time, I still think the entire story is brilliant. I found the antiquated English to help place the story in its time setting. Undset gives us a look into another century but also into the life of a real human being in all her complexities. Kristin is headstrong and often gets what she hopes for only to discover what she got wasn't what she hoped. But she accepts responsibility for what she brought into being even when she has to wrestle with what she wrought.
