Description
This is the final part of the Alberta trilogy, tracing the emotional development of a lethargic and unhappy girl into a self-sufficient woman, yet stands as a novel on its own. Alberta, now mistress to the Norwegian artist Sivert, is living in Paris with their small son. While Sivert is involved in a liaison with a Swedish painter, Alberta falls in love with Pierre, a writer who has just returned from World War I. After a period of conflict Alberta returns to Norway, and there her self-realization becomes complete. Born Sara Fabricius in Oslo in 1880, Sandel endured a difficult childhood in the northern Norwegian town of Tromsų, after which she wrote her Alberta trilogy. These novels earned her an immediate place in the Scandinavian canon, but it was not until the 1960s that Sandel, by then living as a recluse in Sweden, was discovered by the English-speaking world. Her books were acclaimed in the mainstream press, and feminist critics reinvented her as a champion of women s emancipation. She wrote many other novels and short stories and was awarded a State Pension for artists by Norway. Sandel died in 1974.
