[October, 2015]

[April, 2014] Still amazing.

[December 28, 2011] Amazing -- a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, and a great book in its own right.

Like the previous novels, it's exceptionally well researched -- a beautiful and unsentimental portrayal of late medieval Scandinavian life, and of one woman's powerful sin and love. ( )

"It seemed to her a mystery that she could not comprehend, but she was certain that God had held her firmly in a pact which had been made for her, without her knowing it, from a love that had been poured over her — and in spite of her willfulness, in spite of her melancholy, earthbound heart, some of that love had stayed inside her, had worked on her like sun on the earth, had driven forth a crop that neither the fiercest fire of passion nor its stormiest anger could completely destroy"

There is plenty of tragedy in this final book of the trilogy. Kristin loses several family members to death, even before the black plague comes to Norway. She and Erland still have a tumultuous relationship. He continues to be lackadaisical about protecting his sons' inheritances, and she continues to hold a hatred and resentfulness towards him. She finally makes peace with Erland, and let's go of her resentment towards him on his deathbed. From there she works only to secure the welfare of her sons. After this is done she becomes a nun, and she nurses those with the black plague. This was actually the most interesting part of the book to me. Kristin eventually gets the black plague, herself, and dies. Even though this novel ends with her death, she finally let's go of her guilt, learns to trust in God, and dies in peace. This book moved a lot faster for me than The Wife. Like the previous books in the trilogy, The Cross is beautifully written, despite being a bit wordy and repetitive in some areas, with a strong theme of love and redemption. This trilogy is not an easy read, but it's definitely worth it.

Kristin Lavaransdatter is a trilogy set in 14th century Norway, and follows the life of a strong, independent woman. The first volume covered Kristin’s childhood and marriage; the second, her life as a mother, bearing seven sons and managing a large agricultural estate. The Cross is the third and final volume in this epic work. Kristin is in her late 30s, and considered beyond reproductive age. In the previous book, her husband Erlend lost his land holdings, and they now live on Kristin’s family estate. Her oldest sons are in their late teens, and ready to assume the responsibilities of grown men, but will not enjoy the inheritance they might have once expected.

This novel sees Kristin coping with tensions in her relationship with Erlend, and with the prospect of “losing” her sons to marriage and families of their own. Simon Darre, once betrothed to Kristin but now married to her younger sister, is always waiting in the wings to provide Kristin support when needed. It’s clear his feelings for Kristin have never gone away, and while Kristin can’t help thinking of the life that might have been, she also knows her rather unstable life with Erlend has suited her better than a life with steady but rather boring Simon.

The church figures prominently during this time period, and people are often judged harshly for what is seen as “immoral” conduct. Kristin herself was a victim of this, having defied her father’s choice for a husband, sleeping with Erlend before marriage, and deceiving everyone with a lavish wedding even though she knew she was pregnant. Now, while she is respected in the community, her morals are always suspect.

As the book progresses, the lives of all principal characters play out in interesting and unexpected ways. Kristin’s inner strength kept her going through hardship and personal tragedy, despite pressure to conform to church and community norms. Her story ends in a way that surprised me, but which on reflection seems fitting. Kristin Lavransdatter will stay with me for some time. ( )

Given the title I thought this would be full of regligious angst (again), but it turns out she got that over with in Vol. II. I think this is my favourite of the trilogy. It's amazing how much this series feels like a real person's life. It doesn't follow the usual fiction plot structures. ( )

Läste just att Kristin Lavransdotter är en av världens bästa kärleksromaner. Tycker att det är en av världens bästa romaner. Kände mig helt enkelt lycklig efter läsningen. (Antagligen tillkommer översättaren Teresia Eulén en del av berömmet.) EWn helt fantastisk berättelse om liv och död, kärlek och brist på förståelse, om vardagsliv, klyftor, tro och vidskepelsen i 1300-talets Norge. Önskar att jag hade läst den tidigare! En kvinnoroman? Aidrig, en roman om och för mänskligheten! ( )

The second year Erlend Nikulausson and Kristin Lavransdatter dwelt on Jorundgaard, the mistress was minded to go herself and lie the summer over at the saeter.
During the second year that Erlend Nikulaussøn and Kristin Lavransdatter lived at Jørundgaard, Kristin decided to spend the summer up in the mountain pastures.
Kristin Lavransdatter is a remarkably durable novel, for at least two reasons that appear to be contradictory. (Introduction)
