In this first volume of the Bjørndal-trilogy, Beyond Sing the Woods, we get acquainted with the Bjørndal family and the limited reality in the village where they live.
We witness how the position of the family makes it the focus of attention in the villages, and how gossip, envy and evil become part of the family’s reality. We encounter everything: love, dilemmas, and the troubles of finding the right solutions and living the lives they should.
Few family novels have ever succeeded in making the people and the life they led so alive and real as Gulbranssen does in this book.
