'All fires burn out sooner or later.'

The Cross find Kristin Lavransdatter returning with her husband, Erlend, and their sons to her childhood home, Jorendgaard. As the boys grow older, Kristin is increasingly worried about their prospects, and she and Erlend become estranged. The most devastating and emotional volume in the trilogy, The Cross chronicles the trials and losses Kristin must bear, and how she finds the strength to endure them. This final chapter in her story emphasizes the medieval belief taht the spiritual world has priomacy over the material one, a belief with which Sigrid Undset herself concurred but found lacking in most of her own contemporaries. Tiina Nunnally's exquisite award-winning rendering of Undset's masterwork will enthrall anew.

'A masterpiece . . . writing in a prose as vigorous, articulate and naturalistic as teh novel it re-creates, Tiina Nunnally brilliantly captures a world both remote and strangely familiar.'

- PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize citation
